Someone stole a $5,000 wheelchair from a Minnesota man as he traveled through Nebraska, and officials wants the public to help find it.

The 29-year-old Minnesotan called the Nebraska State Patrol this week to report that his wheelchair had been stolen from outside his parked vehicle. The man, who has quadriplegia, was traveling with two friends from Colorado to Minnesota on March 21. They parked to rest overnight on a frontage road just south of the Alda exit off Interstate 80 in Hall County. The wheelchair was placed outside of the car to allow for the seat to recline.
