Now, the Sloan family is asking for the public’s help in finding it.

“He just really liked seeing the world on two wheels,” Erin said.
The stolen bike has been reported to the Victoria police, but are looking into any way they can help track it down.
The family says the bike isn’t in good working order and likely doesn’t hold much monetary value, but to them it’s priceless.
