Eight year old girl with Cerebral Palsy needs her iPad back, lost somewhere in St. Catharines
A night time trip to Port Dalhousie has turned into a nightmare for a St. Catharines family.
Eight year old Madison Walker who is here from Manitoba and suffers from Cerebral Palsy, is visiting her grandmother in the Garden City, and has lost her iPad One that she uses for communication.
Grandmother Mary Wright says Madison and her father went to Port Dalhousie to see the lighthouse and take in the sunset Tuesday night, but after parking he placed the iPad on the roof of the car.
They left Port Dalhousie and drove along the parkway by the Welland Canal in hopes of seeing a ship.
It wasn't until that night they realized what had happened.
At this point they are not sure if someone took it off the roof of the car while they were at the lighthouse, or if it fell off when the car was moving and someone found the computer.
The family back tracked and searched for the iPad on Wednesday but came up empty.
According to her grandma Mary Wright, the computer is a lifeline for her existence.
Wright says Madison's mother contacted Apple in order to track the computer, and if anyone opens up the computer using Wi Fi, the company will be alerted.
She says the company also has a process of closing down some of the apps.
The police were contacted in order to prove to Apple that everything is being done to find this important tool of communication for Madison.
