LUMBERTON, N.C. -

A pregnant woman from Florida, moving to Virginia to be closer to her fiancé, had her U-Haul stolen in North Carolina.

WAVY, the NBC affiliate in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, reports Kim Ober, who is 8 months pregnant, couldn't wait to move to Virginia. Her fiancé is stationed at Little Creek.

Ober told WAVY she packed everything she owned in the U-Haul. After driving for hours, Ober and a friend she was traveling with decided to stop at a hotel in Lumberton.

"All I went into the hotel with was really my purse and my toothbrush, because we were going to get right back on the road," Ober told WAVY.

When they came back out, Ober's vehicle and the U-Haul were gone.

WAVY reports that authorities eventually found Ober's vehicle and the U-Haul, but both had been torched

Ober's friends have created the Kim Recovery Fund online to help the future mom get back on her feet.
