LUMBERTON, N.C. -- A pregnant military fiancée packed everything she owned into a U-haul and started the trip from her home in Florida to Hampton Roads, Va., where her soon-to-be husband is stationed.

But when Kim Ober stopped in Lumberton Saturday for a rest, someone stole the U-haul holding all her belongings.

The U-haul, trailer and her jeep were all missing.

All she had in the hotel were her purse, change of clothes and toothbrush.

A short time later, police found the trailer and jeep in one county and the U-haul in another county.

All had been torched.

"I started thinking as sad and as heartbreaking at this is for me and my baby, their lives must be a lot sadder than mine right now if that's the type of life that they are living."
