MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- "It`s been frustrating. It was the last thing we expected to happen for it to just be gone one day."

But just like that the food truck known for ice cold snowballs during the summer and warm down home gumbo during the winter vanished.

"I hope we get it back because we`ve put our heart and soul into it."

On Friday, Teresa McGoldrick got word that her food truck was taken from a storage facility on South Mt Pleasant in Collierville.The family said they parked the truck there for safe keeping during a tough time.

"My mom passed away unexpectedly a few weeks ago. We were taking the month of December off to make sure my dad was okay," she told WREG.

Social media has exploded with supporters on the look out across Shelby County.

"Makes you feel good that people are really looking for it. It`s pretty visible with the big jester on the side on all the purple writing."

"When people see strange things or things out of the ordinary they report it so I`m sure if they are driving it around it`ll be reported pretty soon," McGoldrick added.

Even with this dark cloud over their business venture, McGoldrick has managed to find the silver lining.

"The support we`ve gotten from everyone has been amazing. Shows you there is good in the world."

She hopes police will track down the truck thieves just in time for a special milestone. January will be their first anniversary.

She said she intends to keep rolling and serving up cones and gumbo for many years to come.
