Let's put this story in reverse real quick.

Two weeks ago, I told you that Agnello got a flat tire while driving eastbound on I-496.

He left it there to get to an appointment, not knowing that just an hour later. It would be gone.

"We both talked about it a lot at night, It's so hard, your daily routines go on the same no matter what, whether it's a good day or a bad day"

Now putting it back into drive.

At around 6am Tuesday morning Ingham County Sheriff's office responded to a tip that offered some hope..

“We responded to the residence and found a car covered in a tarp in the back of a residence”

“This all goes back to the tipster, we acted on the tip right away and sure there was some collaboration, a lot of media attention, and a lot of information about this car, it was very unique”

The car, which was restored by Make-A-Wish foundation due to Agnello's cystic fibrosis.. came back with a few dings, and a missing battery -- but thankfully it came back in one piece.

And with the help of Mullins towing the car was brought back to Agnello's residence... completely free of charge..

“I can’t thank everyone enough. It's amazing, there are great people out there, all over and I appreciate everyone. ”

A classic car that was stolen in our neighborhoods has been found.

“It meant everything, the car has been in my family since I can remember, I had it help restored from the Make-A-Wish foundation,” owner Josh Agnello said.
