Texas house reported stolen was possibly repossessed

MADISONVILLE, Texas (AP) - Investigators say a vacation home reported stolen by a Houston couple might have been repossessed and they're likely victims of alleged financial issues of the prior owner.

KTRK-TV reports Jo and Lonnie Harrison say their one-bedroom cabin is missing from Madisonville, 90 miles (144 kilometers) northwest of Houston.

The prefabricated home was on property they purchased last year but hadn't checked since November. Lonnie Harrison returned Friday and discovered the house was gone, with blocks and pipes remaining.

He contacted the Madison County Sheriff's Office.

Sgt. Larry Shiver (SHY'-ver) said Monday that the Harrisons are likely victims of misrepresentation of the property when they bought it.

Shiver said deputies had served financial-related civil papers on the previous owner. Investigators are seeking that person amid concerns the structure was repossessed, not stolen.
