ALBANY, N.Y. - A stolen bike that
had been given to a local teenager though the Make-A-Wish Foundation has been
14-year-old Ben Grant was diagnosed
with Acute Lymphoblastic leukemia at just 9-years old. Now in remission, Ben
was excited when he received a rare Kink Brand BMX bike through the Make-A-Wish
"I just saw it and I fell in
love with it," he said.
But earlier this week, police in
Guilderland say two bikes, including Ben's, were stolen from Crossgates Mall.
Both bikes have now been returned.
Ben and his family were heartbroken.
They say "the bike is very special to the teenager and he values it very
much." So his family and friends took to Facebook, sharing a photo of the
bike, asking for it to be returned.
"We don't have to know who you
are. I really hope that you learn from this that some kids go through a lot of
heartache and hardship to get what they have," Ben's mom, Gina Grant said
to the suspect. "If you could just please return the bike somehow. Have
somebody just return it for you and drop it off to the Guilderland Police
