KALAMUNDA’s gopher-riding resident Nina Radamanthos is appealing for the return of her wheels after she found it gone when she came back from a walk.

Many people will have seen Mrs Radamanthos zipping along the streets of the Perth Hills on the distinctive red gopher covered in racing sticks.

Mrs Radamanthos has multiple sclerosis and the old model is her back up when her newer blue gopher is out of action.

She left the vehicle at the rear of Kalamunda Primary School on Monday morning about 8am and when she returned from walking her dog, it was gone.

The gopher was taken from the same spot the previous Monday, but friends found it down a ditch with the key missing.

“Someone must have come back the following week and used the key to drive off with it,” she said.

“I’m extremely dependent on it to get about, really it’s devastating because my other gopher is broken; it couldn’t have happened at worse time.”

Mrs Radamanthos said the gopher gave her the freedom to get about and enjoy walks in the bush.

She appealing for its return and asked anyone who sees it to contact the police.
