After being dispatched, Patrolman Jim Fitzgerald searched for the missing bike to no avail. However, he wasn’t going to settle for a missing bike and a sad little girl, so he took matters into his own hands. The officer returned to the Cronin residence the very next day with a brand new bicycle for Madison.
