Woman who recently moved to Houston says moving company won’t give back family heirlooms

HOUSTON – It’s been nearly eight weeks since movers took off with some of Sara Eriksen’s dearest possessions.

She has no idea where they are or if she’s ever going to get them back.

What’s making matters worse, she says most of the items that are missing could never be replaced.

When Eriksen’s parents died, she held on to their belongings, hoping to keep their memories alive.

“So, my mom had stuff from her childhood, including her journal that she kept since she was in high school. I had all of that. The most important thing was my mom’s wedding dress,” Eriksen said.

The sentimental items are now a distant memory. Eriksen says she hasn’t seen them since Feb. 5 when movers packed them away for a move from California to Houston.

Tuesday, she got the runaround.

“He said it left the warehouse and the driver would keep me updated. But still no update,” Eriksen read from a text message.
