PEABODY, Mass. (AP) — A 5-year-old Massachusetts boy is heartbroken after the gifts he received at his birthday party were accidentally loaded into the wrong vehicle and disappeared.

Jessica Fratoni, of Peabody, tells The Salem News ( ) that a friend offered to put her son Gage's new Legos, action figures and other gifts in the mother's Honda Pilot after the birthday party at a bowling party Sunday.

The friend apparently loaded the gifts into the wrong Honda Pilot.

Fratoni contacted the bowling alley, which got in touch with other parties at the facility, but no one has come forward. She also contacted police and went on Facebook to appeal for the gifts' return.

Fratoni says her son cried and losing the gifts is "the worst thing that could possibly happen to a 5-year-old boy."
