An Albuquerque man can't find something he desperately needs: His custom wheelchair.

Dominique Rogers was helping his family move by lending his truck, and he assumed they loaded up his wheelchair.  But he says it was left outside.  When he realized that, he went back to look for it and it was gone.

"If they took it thinking it was some type of toy or if just something that they could gain from...it's something that I really need and I'm in a bad situation now," Rogers said.

Rogers says the custom chair cost about $3,000 dollars, but to him it's worth a lot more.  He says it helps his posture, so without it he is in a lot of pain.

His teammates with the Albuquerque Kings set up a place online to make donations.  For that, click here.
