Local woman wants trike back

Margo Massie is hoping there’s someone out there who has seen her trike

Margo Massie is hoping there’s someone out there who has seen the trike that has allowed the MS sufferer to enjoy a little exercise for the last 20 years.

Massie, a Sidney resident, has been hoping it would turn up since she witnessed it being stolen by who she calls two teenage boys at around noon on Oct. 7. ”I was just coming off of the bike path at the north end of James White Boulevard on my (motorized scooter) when I saw two boys coming towards me.”

One was riding her trike, she said, and when she confronted them about it, they took off.

“That’s when I yelled, ‘that’s my trike!’”

Massie said she chased the pair but they were able to outrun her and vanished. She hasn’t seen the trike since. Massie said she called the police right away. They opened an investigation but have not yet found the stolen property.

Massie said she had left it unlocked at her home, and regrets that, but said she didn’t expect something like this to happen to it. She is hoping by getting the word out, someone might eventually see the trike and report it to the police.

She bought the trike 20 years ago in Vancouver. Its design allows her to use it for exercise and the seat allows her to rest while riding. Massie is unable to walk due to her illness. She hopes whoever took the trike will return it, or that someone finds it.
