Last month, Teresa Hruza, came home to horror, her 16-year-old son, Koby, took his own life in her basement.

"It was like a bad dream, a nightmare," explains Teresa.

After the tragedy, friends decided to remodel Teresa’s entryway, so never again, she'd have to walk down the stairs that led her to Koby's body.

"It's an amazing thing to see, gods people coming together to help a family in need," says Pastor John Kunze with Messiah Lutheran Church, where much of the help came from.

But a donated trailer, to store items while the remodel was being completed was recently stolen.

Teresa says she’s now lost mementos of Koby.

"What else can happen, it was just thinking about everything that was in there, baby pictures, scrapbooks," says Teresa.

Pastor John says, “Here's a family who's suffered an immense tragedy, and then to have this happen to them is just another deep wound."

The family is hoping the people of Lincoln can help.

It’s thought the white 20 foot atlas auto hauler was taken sometime between June 3rd and June 5th.

The trailer had damage to the right rear corner.

If you have any information you are encouraged to call crimestoppers at (402) 475-3600.

Teresa says, "There's a lot of stuff from when he was growing up, a lot of pictures and a lot of his old hockey equipment, stuff I just can't replace."

If anyone lives near or owns a business near Messiah Lutheran Church, off 84th street, and has securities cameras Teresa asks you go through last weeks video and see if maybe a vehicle carrying that trailer drove by.
