Capital's been told a seriously disabled little boy been stopped from going out, because his specially made wheelchair was in his families car that was stolen at the weekend.
Two year old William from Derby has lots of medical appointments but now he can only get to them if he's carried which makes him distressed.
William's Mum, Alison, called up Capital to ask for help as she doesnt know how long it will take to get a new bespoke wheelchair made up.
The chair was made specially to help William breathe which he struggles to do in a normal pram.
Police have confirmed to us that the car was taken sometime overnight on Saturday, or early on Sunday morning. Alison says it's had a big impact on all the family and while she would like the car back too she told us the wheelchair is far more important to them. She added the wheelchair is of no value to anyone but themselves.
She's also asked people to keep an eye out for the car which is a silver coloured Kia Sedona.
