Tuesday we told you about a teenager with spina bifida and scoliosis whose wheelchair was stolen.

A Go Fund Me page has raised almost $3,000 to buy a new one for Romeo Rogers.

The wheelchair was stolen from in front of his house in Jackson Monday afternoon.

A family friend set up the page in the hopes of buying Romeo a new lightweight chair that will make it easier for him to get around.

Jackson Police have located the wheelchair after responding to an unrelated call.

We'll keep you updated on the return of the wheelchair.
