An Aloha man had hoped whoever stole his daughter's custom wheelchair took it for a joyride and would return it.
That was in June, and the wheelchair is still missing.
Deputies said the 9-year-old's wheelchair was stolen from the front porch of a home on the 5400 block of Southwest 152nd Avenue in Aloha. A relative told FOX 12 that the family had gone out to eat, and when they returned home, the wheelchair was gone. The girl had the wheelchair for about a year, she said. She got it from Oregon Health & Science University, she added.
It was a secondary wheelchair for the girl, described as a Colours in Motion lightweight pediatric non-motorized chair. It had a metallic purple and green paint scheme with stars and moons on the seat.
It has a replacement value of $6,000.
The theft happened in June, but deputies said the father held off on reporting it in hopes that it was just taken by some kids who would return it.
If you have seen the wheelchair, call the Washington County Sheriff's Office at 503-629-0111.
