A few days after seeing a bicycle for sale on a Facebook yard sale page that looked remarkably like the one Ann Antes got her seven-year-old son Cameron for Christmas, Ann realized that it was in fact her son's bike. Someone had stolen Cameron's bicycle and sold it for a some quick cash, $20, to be exact.

“Cameron and his dad came inside from attempting to play and Cameron told me his bike was not outside or in the shed,” said Ann. “My husband confirmed it was nowhere to be found. So after thinking on it a few days, I decided to post a small video of him riding it, with this plea:

"So recently my son's bike was stolen. It was posted here and on a few other yard sale sights. If you purchased this bike for the $20 that it was listed for I would gladly give your money back to you for the return of my baby boy's bike. This is all he ever has to do and he is sad it was taken. There is one thing on the bike that will prove it to be ours. Theft is so bad anymore. If there is a decent person left please pm me. Thank you."
