A FOUR-YEAR-OLD girl was left without her specially designed wheelchair after thieves broke into her parents’ home in the middle of the night.
They also made off with two computers, cash and a one-year-old Ford Galaxy at the house in Thornfield Hey, Spital, Wirral.
Detectives believe the burglary happened late last Sunday night or in the early hours of Monday.
The specially adapted wheelchair is worth £3,000 and is vitally important to the girl’s everyday life in coping with a muscular condition.
Detective Inspector Justin Danher said: “We are appealing for anyone who may have information about the whereabouts of this car or the wheelchair / push chair, 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.”
Officers were called to the house after reports that a black Ford Galaxy Zetec, registration FE12 XXJ, was stolen from the drive. The specially designed wheelchair was in the boot.
