LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - A Las Cruces mother is hoping whoever stole a custom wheelchair-stroller needed for her disabled daughter will return it.

The Las Cruces Sun-News says (https://bit.ly/1IFJNbv) Ana Salinas discovered Thursday night that the stroller was missing from her vehicle.

Salinas says the stroller is for her 6-year-old daughter, Dominique Perriguey.

Dominique was born with a rare chromosomal disorder called Phelan-McDermid Syndrome.

The disorder leaves her unable to walk and verbalize.

Salinas bought the $2,000 EZ Rider Mobility Stroller a few months ago because Dominique is too heavy to be carried everywhere.

Police are investigating but are asking the public to keep an eye out for the stroller.

Salinas says some people are urging her to seek donations online for a new stroller but she just wants the original back.
