A Rhode Island mother is asking for the person who stole her 4-year-old son's wheelchair to return it, no questions asked.

Latarcia Bonds of Providence tells WPRI-TV that every day she brings the $2,800 wheelchair to the sidewalk in front of the family's home for her son's ride to school. Then she brings down her son, D'Mauri (duh-MAHR'-ee), separately.

The other day, in the few minutes she left the wheelchair unattended, it disappeared.

Bonds says D'Mauri can't walk or talk and hasn't been able to go to school since the chair was stolen. She says her insurance won't pay for a new chair.

She says she has reported the theft to police.
