SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - A U-Haul containing nearly everything a Canadian family owns that was stolen over the weekend has been found in an abandoned barn in South Spokane County.

The U-Haul was stolen from a Spokane Valley Holiday Inn Sunday morning sometime between 8:30 and 9:30 a.m.

The 34-year-old father called 911 Sunday told a deputy the family was moving from Canada to Florida and that nearly everything they owned was inside.

It was discovered in the barn around 9 a.m. Wednesday.

A man walking through State of Washington property along the BNSF Railway right of way early Wednesday noticed the door of an abandoned barn was closed. He had seen it partially open earlier in the week.

Peeking inside, he spotted the stolen U-Haul truck, its roll-up door open and household contents scattered on the floor and in adjacent stalls. He called the sheriff's office to report the find.

The family's belongings were loaded into a second U-Haul rig and inventory of the items was expected to take place elsewhere.

Crossing the U.S./Canada border required that they had an inventory of everything inside the truck and he provided that to the deputy.
