Two stolen vehicles adapted for wheelchairs vanished from a Menlo Park woman's home on Nov. 7, but returned three days later, thanks to the police.
Annette "Nettie" Wijsman, a 55-year-old ergonomics consultant, has been confined to a wheelchair since 2007 and relies on the vehicles for work. Theft insurance covered a 2000 black Honda CRV, but not a 1999 gold Dodge van.
Wijsman told the Almanac she forgot that she left her keys in one vehicle after unloading it. When she realized the keys were missing the next day, she went to get them and found both cars had disappeared from her home near Flood Park.
