Police need the public's help locating a custom-made electric-powered tandem bicycle that was stolen in Marina Del Rey. The orange bicycle had been donated to a 12-year-old special needs girl by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Mia Timbrello has autism and underwent double organ transplant when she was a toddler. Since then, she has spent years in and out of the hospital. Family members say the one joy she looked forward to the most on the weekends has been taken from her.

The bicycle, said to be worth several thousand dollars, was being stored at a family friend's home when two unidentified men were seen on surveillance video carrying it over a locked gate at the Marina City Club Condominium complex.

Though the surveillance video clearly shows the theft, the suspects' identities are not clear. That's why investigators are now reaching out to the public for help.
