SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Salt Lake City police say they’ve found a specially equipped minivan stolen from the family of a quadriplegic man.

Authorities said that the car was found in South Salt Lake on Friday afternoon, about a day after it was stolen while the man’s mother left it running to warm it up Thursday morning.

Police say the 27-year-old victim was a college football player before his spine was served in a serious car accident in January.

Police say his mother and father, a retired firefighter and nurse, bought the van with their retirement funds and are also paying for his therapy.

Clothing, medical equipment and needed medication were also inside the van when it was stolen.

Details about the car’s condition when it was found were not immediately available.
