LEE COUNTY, Fla.- To some, a 1961 three-wheel, three-speed, light blue, Schwinn bicycle is a way to take a ride through the park.
But to Atina Sanchez, it's her only way around town.
"To go to my uncles house, to my friends house and to ride around the neighborhood," said Sanchez.
Atina suffers from Epilepsy and can't drive, so her friend bought her a custom painted bike nearly two years ago.
"It is spray painted bright blue and it had spray painted black rims," said Sanchez.
Last Wednesday Sanchez came outside her south Fort Myers house to find her bike missing. She thought it was a prank, so she called her friends.
"Did you take my bike? Because I thought one of my friends took my bike," Sanchez said to her friend
After searching the entire neighborhood with no luck, Sanchez filed a report with the Lee County Sheriff's Office.
Her family says even though the bike is worth $400, to them, it is priceless because they can't afford to buy another one.
"She wont even walk to far, you know, and without the bicycle she is kind of stuck now," said Sanchez's mother Joyce.
After days with no leads, Sanchez called WINK News hoping that the eyes of many will help bring her bike home.
"I just want my bike back. I don't care who has it, I just want my bike back," said Sanchez.
