Special Bike Stolen from Autistic Boy

Print Friendly

Alex Jeffers’ special three-wheeled bike was stolen from his home in Delaware this past weekend. What makes an already outrageous action even worse is that Alex is diagnosed with autism. One of the most essential aspects of someone with autism’s life is a routine. Alex’s routine involved that bicycle that he received for his tenth birthday. Now without it, he cannot continue the very routine that gives him comfort and makes him happy. I certainly can’t imagine his reaction and utter confusion when he went to his backyard where his bike usually can be found and saw it was gone.

The parents are understandably outraged and are asking simply for the bike to be returned. No questions asked, no charges, just the bike back so Alex can enjoy it again and return to his routine.

No fund has been set up for the Jeffers family that we know of. A photo of Alex on his bike has been included so that anyone who may have seen the bike might be able to help the police find it and return it to its rightful home.

Alex, we hope you get your bike back!

    Alex: I wanna offer you a replacement trike for free. the one I have looks exactly like yours and has about 20 miles on it. It has 24″ tires and looks like the one you had stolen, only this one is maroon.
    Don’t give yp and don’t feel bad! I already contacted the police cheif in your town and made this offer….call them right away and you’ll be riding again real soon! It’s gonna be OK! I’ll make things right for you, little guy.
