SOUTH OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- South Ogden Police are looking for the person who may have stolen a special bike from a girl who has spina bifida.

Eleven-year-old Wiley Johnston can't walk because of her disease, which is a congenital malformation of the spinal column.

The little girl's mother noticed the three-wheeled bike missing from the family's carport Monday night, but the helmet and gloves were left on the driveway.

Karleen Johnston says the only exercise her daughter gets is on her bike, which Wiley planned to ride to elementary school next year.

Anyone with information may contact South Ogden police.
