When the envelope containing the $1,060 they had saved suddenly went missing, the couple went into full-out investigative mode! They say they searched the house desperately for it over the weekend, when they planned to hand it over-and eventually discovered the remains of the cash in the shredder.

The couple contacted the U.S. Treasury Department and may be able to get some or all of their money back, but later rather than sooner.

Their 2-year-old son, Leo, had used the shredder in the past under his parents' supervision, they told KSL.

The Belnap family's savings have taken a considerable blow after their toddler, Leo, placed $1000 worth of notes through an electronic shredder.

Ben shared a snap of a sheepish-looking Leo - and the shredded cash - on Twitter afterwards.

A Utah family is scrambling to replace more than $1,000 that their toddler son destroyed in a paper shredder.

Their two-year-old son helps shred junk mail, and was trying to be helpful.

Hope, and perhaps the money, may not lost for the couple. It just may take a while for the them to get it back, as the office's website says there are lengthy wait times.

"I'm digging through the trash and she hollers and says, 'I found it, '" Ben told CNN affiliate KSL.

The Belnaps have been saving up money for the a year ago to pay Ben's parents back for University of Utah football season tickets.

In shock, Jackee said the two "shuffled" through the shreds of paper for a few minutes in silence. The Belnap's received a phone call to "bag it up in little Ziploc bags, mail it to D.C., and in one to two years, you'll get your money back".

"As devastated and as sick as we were, this was one of those moments where you just have to laugh", Jackee Belnap told KTVX-TV.
