A Seattle woman and her brother were too tired to drive past Stockton last night on their way from Georgia to Washington.
They were hauling the belongings of their late father and his ashes; their dad died in a car crash two weeks ago.
They woke up this morning to a heartbreaking discovery.
“Get up at five, think we’re starting early," said Kristy Comstock. "The truck and everything is gone."
They’d flown to Georgia, and rented a huge yellow Penske truck. They began the trip to Seattle and were towing a trailer and their father’s car. The car and trailer were discovered Tuesday morning in farmland northeast of Stockton. But the Penske truck and their dad’s ashes, kept in a marble box, are still missing.
“I just want my dad back," Comstock said. "It’s clearly marked; his name and date and everything are on there. I want to be able to take him home."
