The sheriff's office requested the public's help identifying the owner of the mystery house, and later posted that the owner had been found.

Sheriff Darren Eichinger told McClatchy News deputies spoke to the owner and learned the man had been transporting the mobile home to his property in Oklahoma "when several of the tires blew out." Eichinger said the trailer has now been moved out of the road.
