GRANTS PASS, Ore.-- A Grants Pass family is frustrated after they say most of their Easter eggs were stolen out of their front yard before family members arrived for a hunt.

Misty Bauer says, "I was heartbroken, I was literally crying while I was cutting cabbage.”

This Easter bunny had a late night-- hiding these colorful eggs all around her apartment until the early hours of Sunday morning.

It was supposed to be a special surprise for 8 kids that day.

But to this family's surprise, their eggs were hunted by strangers, old enough to drive.

Bauer says, "Before we could have our egg hunt, several people were driving by and coming up taking the candy eggs, like it was a free for all, by the time we had our egg hunt there was nothing left."

Bauer says, "This community is falling apart, it's sad."

Misty says it’s not that the eggs were of particular value-- but the experience she worked hard for was.

Bauer says, "For me it was a memory, I was making a family memory with my family. This was our first Easter as a family completely together."

Misty says there are no surveillance cameras in her complex, she did tell the manager, but she just asks for people to follow the golden rule-- by treating others how you want to be treated.

Bauer says, "I think people need to be more respectful and not steal from kids."
