Theft disappoints mother and son

I am writing as a very angered mother of a special needs son. We were camping this past long weekend and I had taken my son’s PlayStation Portable (PSP) for him to play and for him to just go mellow out when he needed.

I am writing as a very angered mother of a special needs son. We were camping this past long weekend and I had taken my son’s PlayStation Portable (PSP) for him to play and for him to just go mellow out when he needed.

On our return from camping the bag containing his PSP was missing along with his five games and all the cables that he had in there.

He got this gift from his grandmother to hopefully help him gain more function with his hands and hand-eye cordination.

When I got home I searched everywhere, but could not find it. It then dawned on me that when we were packing up our tent trailer it wasn’t even there and was nowhere to be found.

I think this is the lowest of lows anyone can do — stealing from a special needs boy.

If anyone happens to find this stuff please return it. These are very costly items, so please return them to the Castlegar News. It would make a special needs boy very happy, and until he gets these back he will not be able to play!
