PHOENIX - A family moving to Arizona from Georgia was staying at a hotel in the West Valley when they were victimized in a burglary overnight.

"I know it's material things, but some things you can't replace," said Heather Fox.
At the end of a 30-hour trek from Georgia to Arizona came a surprise for the Fox family, when they discovered that the trailer and their truck were stolen. The family made the discovery when they were walking their dog during the morning hours of April 7.
"All of our belongings, my kids' memory boxes, photo albums, their furniture, everything. Clothes. You know, our whole life actually," said Heather.
The Fox family moved to Arizona for a new start.
"We have no vehicle, no means of transportation. We're kind of just stuck here, no family, and we came here to look for a place to rent, and that's been hard too because we wanted to get a place before we moved, but we haven't found a place yet so now, we're just really stuck," said Heather.
The family filed a police report with the Phoenix Police Department. They say they're not worried about the trailer or the truck, nor are they going to press charges. They just want the things that are irreplaceable. "There were a few things and tools. Take that. We just want my stuff back. If they feel like they made a mistake and thought they didn't know what was in the truck, we just want it back. We have nothing.," said Heather.
