Family loses everything after moving truck is stolen

Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- A family loses everything on their first night in Southern Nevada after their moving truck was stolen.

“My entire house was inside that truck,” said Rebecca Lovelady.  “I have my clothes, my kids’ bedrooms, my bedroom, My entire house.  31 years of stuff was in that truck.”

The Lovelady's had parked it behind the Holiday Inn Express in Henderson the night before thinking everything was fine, but when they woke up the next morning their parking space was empty.

Pieces of broken glass are now scattered across the parking lot where the family's moving truck sat just hours before.

She said police told her often times criminals take the expensive items and leave the rest behind, Rebecca hopes that's true for her, since the things she wants back don't come with a price tag.

“I want my kids stuff back. I can't recover those things, I can’t recover my memories. I don’t care about anything else I just want my stuff back.“

The Lovelady’s remain hopeful that their truck will be found.

They’re asking everyone to please be on the lookout for a large Penske moving truck with Indiana license plates.
