NBC26 Update:

Green Bay police have found the vehicle, stolen from Andrew Schmidt. According to an email from his family, officers located the specially equipped SUV on Preble Ave. late last night.

However, the vehicle is not in operating condition. "unfortunately, whoever took the vehicle decided to rip open the seats, tear out the shifting panel and the ignition panel," Danielle Neuman explained. "Just trashed inside." 

The vehicle is being taken to the installers of the equipment to get an estimate on the damage.

The original story:

Everyday vehicles are stolen. For Andrew Schmidt, it wasn't just any vehicle that was stolen overnight Monday. It was priceless.

"I drive with my left foot and I do the shifting and the ignition with my elbows and feet."
Says Schmidt. 

Schmidt is disabled. His 2003 Dodge Durango was fitted especially to allow him to drive the vehicle.  Now it could take months before he can get a new one because of parts that have to be specially ordered.

Because of the delay, Schmidt is relying on friends and family to get around.
"Luckily I have a great girlfriend to help me so I haven't had to try out public transportation yet but there is a bus stop nearby." Says Schmidt. 

But even with insurance Schmidt says he just wants his truck back. 

His girlfriend agrees, Together they have taken to social media to get the community to help. 
"As of now we have over 300 shares we just hope someone will spot the car."
Says Danielle Neuman. 

The Green Bay Police department have been notified of the stolen truck. They have no leads at this time.
