ABBOTSFORD (NEWS 1130) – Police in Abbotsford are hoping you can help them find some items belonging to a young couple on a cross-Canada move.

They lost almost everything when someone stole their truck.

On Tuesday September 12, a moving truck that was hauling the couple’s belongings from Moncton, New Brunswick to Vancouver was stolen from a Park and Ride at Lonzo Road and Sumas Way.

The couple’s furniture, clothes, and kitchen appliances were among the many items inside the stolen white Ford E450 U-Haul cube van.

It was also carrying wedding gifts and mementos, a bass guitar, a quilt, and a handmade tool box — all of which have sentimental value to the couple.

The van was found the next day in Surrey, but it was completely empty.
