OKLAHOMA CITY -- Police have found the car stolen from the family of a 5-year-old girl who has helped raise awareness and money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Bri Johnson has Spinal Muscular Atrophy. She is the MDA Goodwill Ambassador. The car her mother, Teresa Johnson, used to transport Bri and their family was stolen Wednesday from the family's home.

Police found the 1996 Honda Friday just a few blocks from the family's house, but that's not good news for the family. The thieves destroyed the steering column, broke a window and burned out the clutch.

Bri's family says they'll use a relative's car to transport Bri to her treatments.
