Stolen car had child's wheelchair in its boot
THIEVES left a Wirral family devastated when they stole a car which had a wheelchair in its boot belonging to their young daughter.
The black Ford Galaxy Zetec, registration plate FE12 XXJ, had a specially adapted wheelchair in its boot which was “vital” to its four-year-old owner.
Two computers and cash were also stolen from the family’s home.
Detective Inspector Justin Danher said: "We are appealing for anyone who may have information about the whereabouts of this car or the wheelchair to come forward.
"The wheelchair belongs to the four-year-old daughter of the owners and it's vitally important to her for daily life.
"It has been specially-adapted to this little girl and I doubt it would be of use to anyone else.
“I believe it's possible the chair has either been dumped or remains in the back of the car, so I urge anyone who has any information to come forward."
The incident happened in Thornfield Hey, Spital, overnight between Sunday, January 27 and Monday, January 28.
Crime scene investigators forensically examined the scene and house-to-house enquiries have been carried out.
Anyone with information should contact detectives on 0151 777 2264 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
