ISANTI, Minn. - What the Baker family feared was lost forever is now found.
Authorities called the Isanti family Sunday with good news: The ice fishing house Kendal Baker had built with the help of his 3-year-old son Jonah, the one that was stolen from the surface of Skogman lake last week, had been recovered.
Isanti County Sheriff's investigator Rob Bowker says his department received a call from a family in North Branch saying they woke up and found the missing fish house in their yard. They had no idea where it came from, but an acquaintance who saw Boyd Huppert's story on KARE 11 knew, and urged them to call the sheriff.
Dispatchers got the call shortly after 8 p.m. Sunday, and just a few hours later deputies had picked it up and returned it to the Bakers.
So far no arrests have been made in the case, but the good news is that Jonah will now be able to resume the hunt for crappies with his dad and mom. The family had only used the ice fishing house once before it was stolen from Skogman Lake.
Isanti County Sheriff's investigators are still looking for leads from anyone who might have information. The number to call is 763-691-2426.
