Moving company says it found some of military family's goods

A moving company says it found some furniture belonging to a Navy family featured in an Associated Press article about problems military personnel have during transfers.

Joe Ambrose, a manager at Illinois-based Shur-Way Moving, said Monday that furniture and a TV belonging to Petty Officer 1st Class William Mayes were found and delivered last week. He said the search for the remainder is ongoing.

Mayes's wife, Traci, said the family's sentimental goods such as photographs, family letters and heirlooms remain missing. The family moved from Jacksonville, Florida, to Naval Station Great Lakes near Chicago in August.

About 400,000 American military members and civilian employees will move this year with their families and there have been widespread complaints about missing and damaged goods.
