All of family's belongings stolen the day they move to Bakersfield
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A family who just moved back to Bakersfield received a shocking welcome when their truck containing all of their belongings was stolen.

Eric French moved with his family the day after Christmas.They parked their 26-foot U-Haul in an RV lot at the apartment complex they were moving into and brought inside what they needed for the night.

The truck was missing the next morning.

The family's U-Haul was found empty and abandoned Monday on State Road, in the area of Highway 99 and Olive Drive.

"Our Christmas presents were in there for our kids, our clothing, our kitchen, I mean, everything," French said over the weekend, before his empty U-Haul was discovered.

"Material items, those can be replaced, but the ones that are sentimental to people is very, very difficult to deal with," French continued.
