Kate Fiore says the bike got her through the murder of a friend. When she went to ride it Sunday, it had disappeared from her building’s garage. The video shows two men come into the garage early in the morning. One man used a pole to block the camera while the other took off on the bike.

They took something that wasn’t just a thing,” Fiore told News 12. “They took something that was like a vehicle for healing. They took something that was therapy. It was something that helped me get through the incredible loss.”In 2017, Fiore’s coworker was murdered. She says her grief was unimaginable. A close friend gave her the bike to help with her journey through the loss.
“It was this old rickety, rusty bike that I learned how to ride on, and I could be alone on,” Fiore told the TV station. A GoFundMe account is raising money for a reward for any information leading to the motorcycle’s return. You can make a donation here.
