Wisconsin woman, police searching for missing mobility scooter

WEST ALLIS (WISN) — Over the years, walking has become increasingly difficult for retired nurse Nancy Tyazka.

“I can’t walk more than 10-15 feet,” said Nancy Tyazka. “Without stopping and resting.”

She went on disability in 2011, with a combination of arthritis and Neuropathy, but couple years ago, she made a $2,500 dollar investment, that gave her back her independence.

“I use the scooter when I go shopping,” said Tyazka. “Go up to Wal-Mart, Pick ‘n Save, and I use the scooter to carry heavy things back and forth.

She added, she uses the scooter to help her get from her house door to the car door and often brings it with her if she is going to a location that does not have mobility scooters.

On Saturday, as Nancy returned from picking her mother up from church, she noticed the scooter that she left parked outside next to her garage, was gone.

The scooter operated off of a charger and was left outside after charging.

“Without the scooter,” sand Tyazka. “I’m pretty much house bound.”

West Allis police are investigating.

The missing mobility scooter, is blue, with a large cushion seat, a homemade basket up front and a Harley Davidson sticker on the back.
