Feel-good bicycle story

Here's a missing bicycle story with a happy ending out of Columbia, Ill.:

Garrett Betts was driving on Illinois Route 3 in the Columbia area when his Christmas gift -- a $400 bicycle -- flew out of the back end of his pickup truck.

Fortunately for Garrett, Steve Blosser saw the bike along the side of the highway on Christmas Eve.

"I'm so happy to find it, that the little boy is getting his Christmas present back," Steve said.

KTVI-TV, Channel 2, originally broadcast the story about the missing bike on Tuesday. The station put the boy's grandmother in with Steve, leading to the boy finally receiving his gift. KTVI broadcast the clip shown above earlier tonight.
