Melonie’s two sons, Dylan (left) and Harry (right)

A mother from Banks has issued a desperate plea after her autistic son’s bike was stolen.

Melonie’s son Harry’s bike was taken from outside a friends house on Fir Street at around 4pm on Tuesday 3 April.

Harry, 12, suffers from autism which makes changes to routine traumatic and can affect his behaviour.

The mum of two says Harry has been left ‘distraught’ by the theft – and won’t accept kind offers of a new bike.

She said:

“His autism means he finds it difficult to deal with changes, people have offered to lend him bikes until he gets his back, and his Dad even said he could ride his bike, but he won’t take it.

“It’s just shocking – who could steal a child’s bike? It is so distinctive and it’s really obvious it’s a child’s bike”.

The bike is a distinctive blue colour. It has green wheels and handlebars and a fluorescent multi-coloured seat with a Mongoose emblem on it.

The frame of the bike has the word ‘Mongoose’ on the side.

If anyone has information that could lead the bike getting returned can call Melonie on 07872673370.

Merseyside Police have been informed of the theft.
