SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

During her move back to Sulphur, Ericka Malone said two of her R.V. tires blew out on Highway 90 while moving back to Sulphur. Malone took it to Walmart and hoped to keep it there until two new tires were delivered to that location. 

"The tires came in on the third and it was raining so we came back on the fourth to put the tires on and move it to a new spot, and it's just gone. So all I have left is two new tires on the rims, and no RV," Malone said. 

Malone described the R.V. as a 2000, 26-foot-long Fleetwood Wilderness with two doors. She said it was more than just a vacation vehicle.

"I know it doesn't look like much to everybody else, but to me it was everything," Malone said.

She posted pictures of her home on Facebook, where it has more than 800 shares on social media. 

"A lot of people had seen it there at Walmart, one gentleman said he saw it being pulled off. But everyone has been great with sharing it and keeping the story out there," Malone said.

While she's currently staying with a friend in the area, what's next for Malone is up in the air. 

"I ask myself that every day. I really don't know where to go from here, it's hard to have everything taken. So, I don't know," Malone said.

We talked to Sulphur Police who confirmed their investigation is underway but were not able to release any details.
