A family is devastated that one of their most important possessions is missing. A custom-built motorcycle was built by Wally Givens, whose family says he died from a terminal brain tumor just 12 days after he was diagnosed.

"This gate was open. This gate right here," said Megan Cozart, one of Givens' daughters.

That was the first sign the family knew something was wrong. When they went to Givens' shop behind his home, they found it unlocked and the one-of-a-kind motorcycle gone.

"He had a motorcycle lift right here and he was always just working on them, or working on friends' motorcycles," explained Cozart.

For as long as she can remember, her dad could be found working out in his shop. His most recent project was the custom bike. Givens built it from scratch.

"Anytime he got a chance to, he was modifying it or adding something to it or anything to make it personal," said Cozart.

Now that bike has extra importance to Cozart and her siblings. Their father was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor just before Christmas.

"He actually never knew what was wrong with him," said daughter Ashley Jaques. "It just went downhill so fast."

Twelve days later, Wally Givens died the day before Christmas Eve. His shop became a place of comfort for his daughters during the last four months.

"We are always out over here and trying to remember dad."

His bike was the biggest reminder.

"He put all of his time into it and he went to every single bike night with it and he was so proud of it," said Cozart.

Now the spot where the bike has sat for months is empty. Givens' daughters said it's like the last piece of their father was taken away from them.

"I just can't believe someone would do this. I just want to say like, someone, whoever took it please just drop it off no questions asked."

Moore Police are investigating what happened. Anyone with information on where the bike, should call them.
