A Buffalo family has been reunited with what they say is their lifeline.

An hour after 7 Eyewitness News aired the Kast family's story about their stolen van and stroller, Cheektowaga Police located the van.  It's unclear whether the stroller within the van was found too.

The gray 2005 Dodge Caravan and stroller are specially equipped for their 37-year-old son Eddie, who is living with developmental disabilities.  Eddie relied on the van rides and stroller outings as modes of movement and freedom, away from his otherwise sedentary lifestyle. 

The family says the van and stroller were stolen from a parking lot plaza on Harlem Road in Cheektowaga.
