When he returned 30 minutes later, it was gone, the man told police.

It is unknown if a neighbor thought the wheelchair was abandoned and removed it, or if the wheelchair was intentionally stolen, police said.

The wheelchair has a reclining backrest and the leg rests have been removed. It has a blue felt seat and backrest, and had a white seat cushion at the time it was taken, according to police.

Anyone with information is asked to call Ofc. Upham at 410-272-2121.
