WEST VALLEY CITY -- Thursday marks one month since Susan Powell disappeared from her West Valley City home. Her husband, Josh Powell, has returned from Washington and plans to move the contents of the West Valley home and return to Washington permanently.

Neighbor Tim Peterson built a playground for the Powell family just a few days before Susan disappeared. With Josh moving, Peterson wants his playground back.

"He's not looking for his wife, that much I know," Peterson told reporters Wednesday. "I just want to make sure I get my playground, OK? So I can give it to someone else in the ward."

One of Josh Powell's brothers was at the home, but told Peterson he'd have to ask Josh about taking the playground. The brother then called police, saying Peterson was trespassing. Peterson left empty-handed.
