Detectives believed Hakken was using the truck to transport his two sons, 4-year-old Cole and 2-year-old Chase, after he kidnapped them from their grandmother's home early Wednesday morning.

Investigators had to wait for a search warrant before they were allowed inside the truck. When they got the warrant, Hillsborough forensics crews dusted for fingerprints and took photos at the scene.

The truck was then transported to Hillsborough County, where processing of evidence will continue.
