A move from Georgia to Alaska turned into a nightmare for an American military family when they stopped for a night’s sleep at an Abbotsford hotel.
“My life, my children’s life our military gear everything that we accumulated.”
In a YouTube video taken by Abbotsford Police, Anna Spencer describes waking up on Monday to find their 26 foot U-Haul was gone.
The vehicle was stolen from the hotel parking lot in the 36000 block of North Parallel Road.
Constable Ian MacDonald says the family, with five kids in tow , is now on the road to Alaska.
The trailer was found overnight in Surrey, but a significant number of items are missing.
“Our hope is that once we make contact with her family members can come down and do an inventory and hopefully some of those priceless items will still be there.”
The contents of the vehicle included most of the family’s possessions with an estimated value of up to $100,000.
