Woman wants wheelchair returned

Someone has taken Coldstream’s Violet Nolan’s means of mobility.

And as a 72-year-old who has broken nearly every bone in her body as she struggles with severe osteoporosis, Nolan’s Quantum 1121 power wheelchair is essential.

Normally, Nolan locks up her Quantum to a post on the deck outside her Kalamalka Road home.

On June 16, feeling tired from appointments, Nolan went to bed early and forgot to lock up her chair.

In the morning, Nolan discovered it was missing.

“It’s 300 pounds and there’s no key for it, you just press a button and it goes,” said Nolan. “I need this chair for my mobility. If I fall, I’ll likely break something.”

The chair is a 2008 model, sunburst orange in colour with a safety vest taped to the back. There is also a chain and combination lock attached to it.

The chair’s serial number is J1121J6920806289020.

Anybody with any information on the power chair is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
