GALLATIN, Tenn. – An 18-year-old boy with Asperger's Syndrome has been reunited with his customized adult tricycle he uses as transportation around town. Someone stole it from his parents' home last week.

After seeing a story about Danny Jones' stolen bike on NewsChannel 5 last week, neighbor Teresa White realized she had seen what she thought was the bike in her neighborhood the day before.  So, she decided to go door-to-door, telling people that the bike was stolen from a neighborhood teen. 

She told them they could leave the bike on her driveway, no questions asked.  When Teresa walked outside her house on Friday, the tricycle was sitting in her front yard, and it was returned to Danny that day.

"It puts more trust in my neighbors it puts lots of trust in my neighbors," said Jones.  "I've always believed in my neighbors like that."

Danny's family said they wanted to thank all the people who contacted NewsChannel 5, as well as the Gallatin Police Department, offering to buy Danny a new tricycle before his original one was found.
