VERNON, B.C. — It appears to be a happy ending in the case of a U-Haul truck stolen from Vernon.

The truck was stolen from Ryan Prevost's parent's home on Okanagan Landing Road Wednesday night, Aug 31.

Prevost had rented it to transport his family's possessions from Vancouver to Calgary where he and his wife and one year old daughter were to start a  new life.

The story of the theft made headlines throughout the province.

Good news came yesterday, Sep 3, from the RCMP.

"The Vernon/North Okanagan RCMP are pleased to report that the U-Haul, reported stolen containing the household possessions of a young family moving from the Vancouver area to Calgary, has been located in the Peachland area," says Cpl. Spencer Hornoi.

"The truck is full of household items but it is unknown at this time what if anything is missing until a full forensic exam can take place in the next couple of days and the owners have a chance to take inventory."

Hornoi says the RCMP is thanking the public for their assistance as the reports received led directly to the recovery of the U-Haul.

No suspects have been arrested at this point.
