Media reunites Barrie boy with bike

A Barrie boy was reunited with his bike, thanks in large part to the power of the press.
The boy, 11, went to get his bike after school on Tuesday, only to find it gone. He and his mother went to the police station to report the theft, and the boy drew a picture of the bike. That image was distributed to the press, and circulated through the community.
On Wednesday, police took a call from a citizen who reported seeing a bike like the one described. It was picked up and turned out to be the stolen bike.
Still in good condition, the bike was returned to a very happy 11 year old.
