Update (4:55pm 2/26/2015): Klamath Falls, Ore. — The Klamath County Sheriffs Office says the stolen home has been found but it’s still unclear just who owns it.
The log cabin was moved about a half a mile across a field just outside Chiloquin last summer.
Neighbors on Nine Mile Road in Klamath County were surprised to hear on the news that the home was ‘missing.’ One of them said “I just remembered the house from the photo – ‘It’s like, I know that place!” (laughs) “It’s been next door to me for almost a year.”
Sheriff Frank Skrah said “This is a situation where 3 parties are claiming ownership, one of the 3 parties sold it to a fourth party.”
No charges have been filed, and investigators are still trying to piece together just who owns the cabin.
The cabin was purchased and moved sometime last summer for $3,000.
