The Hempel family would visit their cabin every few weeks. It was the perfect getaway — until someone took the cabin off its foundation. Police received a tip on where they could find the cabin.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. The Hempels used to visit their cabin every few weeks. It's tucked away in the woods in Washington state in a spot that's quiet, life is simple, the perfect weekend getaway until someone got away with the Hempels' entire cabin. The family arrived to find the gate to the property broken. They thought maybe a thief had stolen something, just not the building. Police have now found the structure, so the Hempels' home away from home will soon hopefully be returned home. It's MORNING EDITION.
