A Winnipeg family is sending out a special thank you. It’s happy because a stolen bike, specially modified for the family’s nine-year-old boy living with cerebral palsy, was returned late Friday afternoon.

"I just feel so happy right now,” said Shayden. His mom took to social media, posting the story and photos, hoping someone would find the bike.

On Friday, someone did.

"I checked my messages and I had a bunch from a family saying they had found the bike. Someone had sold it to them for parts,” said Rochelle Richards, his mom.

But they recognized it and brought it back.

It will have to be repaired. And his mom plans to buy a shed and a strong lock – so it will never be stolen again.
