Family treasures stolen in Red Deer

Hello, my name is Kimberly Merrow, I am a U.S. citizen who is living in Alaska. Two months ago, my husband lost his job and with no prospects of work in the lower 48 we moved to Alaska for a job and a chance to be able to make it.

Hello, my name is Kimberly Merrow, I am a U.S. citizen who is living in Alaska.

Two months ago, my husband lost his job and with no prospects of work in the lower 48 we moved to Alaska for a job and a chance to be able to make it.

We were able to put enough money together to get here and had friends to stay with while we got our lives back together.

We were able to find a man who was bringing a load to Kenai, and hired him to pick up 15 containers of ours to bring to us.

He was moving another family here (who had their entire house packed on the trailer) and was going to bring our things with them.

They stopped for the night on May 3 at your local Motel 6 and overnight someone stole his truck and trailer.

The local police were unable to find any leads and a week later the truck and trailer were found in Edmonton, completely empty.

I believe that whoever took it was living in Red Deer.

I do not care about the material items that were on that trailer but every picture we had of our children from being born to high school graduation were on that trailer.

I would like to appeal to whoever took those items to either drop the pictures off at a local church or business office for there return to us.

Any help that you could give me would be deeply appreciated.
