FEDERAL WAY, Wash. -- A U-Haul truck with all of a women's property inside, stolen Tuesday from Federal Way, was found Friday night. 

Lee Emory had everything she owns - including her husband's ashes - in the U-Haul.

"Yes, my husband passed away in June and his ashes are on that truck, in an urn," she said Wednesday.  "So this is really devastating to me."

She was in the process of moving to Federal Way from Arizona, where she had lived with her husband.  When he passed away, Emory wanted to move to Washington where her son lives.

She had parked the 20-foot moving truck at the Super Eight Motel on South 348th Street in Federal Way. 

She went to bed Tuesday evening, and when she went to check on the U-Haul at about 12 p.m. Wednesday, it was gone.

The items on Emory's stolen U-Haul include furniture, electronics, family photos albums, and perhaps most important, her husband's ashes.

The U-Haul was found Friday night with a lot of items inside, but it's not yet known if her husband's ashes are inside.
