    The family of a disabled New Jersey boy whose wagon was stolen from their front yard says the thief has made amends after surveillance video of the heist went viral.
     
    Tracy Bean, of Belmar, says one of two young women seen in the video showed up at her home Friday with a new wagon and a long apology note.
     
    Bean had used the wagon to take her 6-year-old son Alex for walks around town. The boy has a rare brain disorder and can't walk or talk.
     
    Home security video shows two young women entering the family's yard early Tuesday, stealing the wagon and running off.

    Bean tells the Asbury Park Press she doesn't plan to press charges. She adds she is overwhelmed by offers from strangers to replace the wagon.
