The wheelchair stolen from an Iraq war veteran on Long Island has been found.

The chair was stolen from Christopher Levi's front yard in Holbrook on January 19th.

It was specially made for Levi who'd lost both legs when a bomb exploded in Iraq in 2008.

Thursday, a man driving near the intersection of Patchogue-Holbrook Road and Broadway Avenue spotted the chair in the woods.

He told police they recovered the chair and now it's back with its rightful owner.

"I'm not angry at them. If it was a group of young kids, I hope they learned. If it was an older person, you should know better," Levi said.

Police are still searching for the person who stole the wheelchair.
