David Underwood was having a hard time finding his house over the weekend and you won’t believe why.

Underwood and his wife were searching everywhere for the Fort Worth home that had been in their family for years. They thought the home had vanished -- and they were right. The city confirmed that its demolition crews leveled the wrong house. 

The three-bedroom, ranch style home, which sat on a lake, was once owned by Underwood's grandmother. It was empty but not condemned like the house next door -- the house that was actually due to be demolished. Instead, crews took Underwood's home. Fort Worth City officials are not investigating the incident, and have already asked owner David Underwood, to evaluate how much the structure was worth so that they can compensate him through a possible settlement for the mistake.
