Williamsport, Lycoming County -- Someone stole John Bubb's bicycle from his backyard Wednesday night.

John has learning disabilities, and the bike was his only mode of transportation.

John goes to work every day to help pay the bills since his mother is suffering from health complications.

After this story aired, Eyewitness News got flooded with Facebook messages, emails, and phone calls.

Then someone spotted John's bike at Bruce Henry Park in Loyalsock Township.

The bike has some damage, but John's family members were glad to get it back.

Several people offered to buy a new bike for John, and local businesses are stepping in to help him.

The family is thankful for all of the support from northeastern and central Pennsylvania.
