Missing tricycle

From a neighbor: Regarding a tricycle that was removed from along Vistamont Drive on Sunday morning, Oct 17, around 10:00 am - it may have been picked up by someone who thought it was out for disposal (although it was definately not next to the curb). It is a red
"classic" RadioFlyer tricycle, and the two-year old rider would very much like to have it back home. If you inadvertently picked it up on the way through the neighborhood, please return to where it was found.
