On top of the distinct license plates, she said her maroon 2003 Chevy Silverado HD 2500 Duramax diesel truck had no tail gate, a blue nylon web net on the back, tinted windows, a tool box, and a fallen soldiers symbol on the rear passenger side window.
MARYSVILLE, Wash. -- The mother of a fallen soldier is on a desperate search to find her missing truck that was stolen from her Marysville home.

"This was him at 4 years old wearing his dad’s flak vest and helmet. ‘Cause he wanted to be in the military all his whole life," Donna Woods said while looking at photos of her son Jake.

In 2009, she lost Jake to suicide just a couple of years after he joined the U.S. Army, she said. He was stationed at Fort Campbell, Kentucky.

"He went to Afghanistan, they made him a gunner, and he came home from Afghanistan, bought himself a fancy sports car and then 6 weeks later killed himself," Woods said.
