DOVER,  Del.- Riding bikes is a must for many kids during the summer, but for one Dover girl her summer fun has been cut short by a thief.

Brianna Garvutt is like most other kids: she loves to play basketball and hang out with her sister, Stephanie. Brianna has autism but that does not stop her from riding bikes with her friends. It is the thief who stole her bike Saturday who is holding her back from fun with her friends.

"Saturday we woke up and Brianna wanted to ride her bike and her bike was missing,"
said Lisa Garvutt, Brianna's mom. "It's the only bike Brianna is able to ride because she has autism. So she has to have four wheels because she doesn't have the balance."

Lisa cannot afford to buy another $300 bike so her daughter has been walking around the neighborhood trying to find the stolen one.

"We searched the area, all the kids in the area were searching for the bike and it's nowhere to be found, so we called the police," she said.

Lisa is heartbroken over the theft. She said Brianna asks for the bike every day. 

"Brianna wakes up crying every morning, wanting to know where her bike lives now," Lisa said.
