"We searched around probably until 3 A.M. and right now it's not really a good thing because we don't have another resort."
Utica resident Shane Young led an active lifestyle for twenty years. He was active in motor cross racing and even training to become a firefighter. But a snowmobile accident left him paralyzed from the waist down and bound to a wheelchair. This $7,000 wheelchair was custom made for Shane so he could continue to provide for his family. Late last night his chair was taken from him.
Shane's Fianc Kierstyn McMahon says, "It's his life, it's his legs, his transportation for his job, its everything."
Shane works at upstate cerebral palsy to help support his fianc and three year old son. And without that chair he won't be able to support them.
She added, "It's upset him a lot because it's pretty much his whole life right there, he's pretty much home bound because of it because he can't go nowhere. He has no other choice but to have a wheelchair in his life"
Shane's friends and family continue to search for his missing chair.
