A worried mum has appealed for her son’s mountain bike to be returned after it was stolen from the Station Park West Notts College, Kirkby.
Fourteen year-old Callum Bowers, who suffers from ADHD and Asperger syndrome is said to be ‘devastated’ after the theft.
The West Notts student had been asked to place the 20” black and white Carrera Valour bike in the loading bay at the college yesterday morning as he had forgotten his lock.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said it was taken sometime between 9.30am and 1.40pm.
Callum’s mum, Maxine (31) said: “Worryingly, my son saw three lads with the bike heading towards Kirkby and went after them, but he lost them.
“He is really upset. His bike was his pride and joy and he is always out on it.
“Without it he is just stuck in the house and he will not walk anywhere.”
Maxine said the bike was vital to Callum, as he uses it to get to college and visit friends in Kirkby and Sutton.
She added: “we just want the bike back. I would like to ask whoever took it just to leave it somewhere safe so we can go and pick it up.”
The police spokesman added: “If anyone has any information about the bike’s whereabouts or the theft please phone us on 101.
