SAN FRANCISCO — A United States Paralympic hopeful is asking for the public for help in finding his prosthetic leg he says was stolen from his car.

KNTV reports ( that Ranjit Steiner woke up Tuesday morning to discover thieves had smashed his car window and taken his laptop and his artificial leg. He uses it for competitive running at City College of San Francisco.

The stolen leg is not the same prosthetic leg a San Francisco police officer found leaning against a tree last week. That one has a brown lace-up shoe on it. Steiner's has two blades on it for running. The rightful owner of the leg with the shoe has not been found.

Steiner says he is a hopeful for the 2016 Paralympics in Brazil. Anyone with information about the leg should call San Francisco police.
