Stolen U-Haul filled with family's items recovered in Long Beach
Officers located the truck in north Long Beach about 1 a.m., using a vehicle description that had been distributed within the department.
Long Beach police Sgt. Greg Schirmer said the "large" truck was undergoing forensic processing to help identify the thieves.
"Quite a bit is missing," he said.
The truck, which was driven away from the home around 2 a.m. Sunday morning, belonged to Allen Bischofberger and his family, KTLA-TV reported.
The family was driving from Northern California to the Los Angeles area to relocate, the station reported.
Schirmer said Long Beach residents have brought clothes and supplies to the family to show support, and that the family appeared to be in good spirits.
He asked anyone with information on the case to call detectives at 562-570-5888.
