A man who returned back to his cabin in Michigan discovered that the entire structure vanished without a trace. Michigan State Police are now searching for the cabin that was recently reported stolen.

The cabin was originally sitting at a location in Cold Springs Township. The 12-by-28 feet structure, which had a roof, a white door and also a front porch, is believed to have been last seen toward the end of 2021, police said, according to the Charlotte Observer.

“The Michigan State Police (MSP) Houghton Lake Post is investigating the theft of a cabin…” said a Michigan State Police statement released Wednesday. “...The theft occurred sometime between Nov. 18, 2021, and Dec. 16, 2021.”

Trooper Matthew Scott, one of the investigators on the case, said the owner previously lived in the cabin for a couple of years. He then moved to another residence, Scott added.

The owner is unsure of what led to his cabin’s disappearance and doesn't know why anyone would want to steal it, the trooper added.

"It's kind of a weird situation," Scott said, according to Detroit Free Press. "At this point, the cabin is definitely not where it's supposed to be. There are different motives, but that's a detail we are trying to uncover."

The trooper said it would be challenging for the police department to track down the cabin, especially since they suspect it was stolen two or three months back.

Investigators currently have potential suspects, Scott added, but did not reveal details so the investigation wouldn’t be compromised.

"You don't see this happen too often," Scott told the outlet and said "anything is possible” when it comes to crime.

Anyone having any information is asked to contact authorities at 989-422-5101, as per the police department’s statement.

An unrelated incident that took place last year reported the theft of an entire pedestrian bridge. An Ohio man faced felony charges for stealing the 58-foot-long, 10-foot-wide and 6-foot-high bridge, which was partially disassembled before the theft. Investigators found that the suspect, David Bramley, used a crane to transport the structure to another property. Bramley was arrested in connection with the incident.
