Kelly took to Twitter and Facebook this week to plead for the return of the drives, which he says were swiped from an SUV on Tuesday between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET.

At around 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Kelly announced on Twitter his property had been returned by the thief's father.

Kelly had offered a reward to anyone who found his hard drives, but he says the man refused it.

The singer-songwriter says the stolen master copy and backup contain about six months of work.

I know many people have bigger problems but I had 6 months of work on those HDs. Please contact me and I'll give you 1000$ to get my hd back
