CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - On any given day you can find dozens of cars parked at the American Legion Hall on Memphis Road.

And on most days you’ll find the commander, Jack Ferguson, there.

On surveillance video, you see Ferguson’s car leaving the hall, except he wasn’t in it,

The 84-year-old is now driving a car that belongs to his daughter, Wendy, but what he needs was in his van.

“I had a scooter in there, a walker, cane, and stuff I use for dialysis and its gone,” he said.

We got this exclusive video from the Marathon Gas Station across the street.

On the recording, you see the the 2006 Chrysler Town and Country. Someone walked up to it, saw the keys on the dash and decided the specialized handicapped van driven by the Korean War vet now belonged to them.

Wendy is furious of the irresponsible person, “This is my dad! I love him with all my hear,t and we just want his stuff back--no questions asked. He needs his stuff, he needs his scooter. He can’t get around. He just needs it."

Not only does Ferguson need it, but he used the van to drive around his daughter Melissa, who has Down Syndrome.

“He takes care of me, and I take care of her and I didn’t tell her the van was stolen. She wouldn’t understand,” he said.

The 2006 Chrysler Town and Country has the plate number: 035-YRU
