Woman needs help getting truck fixed after mechanic ‘disappears’

DENVER -- Siobahan Albadani’s son said his mother would do anything for him.

“She's very caring she will do anything to help me, she's always been there for me," he said.

Right now, it is a major challenge for Siobahan to get her son to his school activities and to travel to her doctor appointments.

She must also care for the therapy dogs she needs because of her disability.

Siobahan’s truck sits useless after a mobile mechanic promised he would fix the transmission for only $800,  then just seemed to disappear.

"I came up with the money and was not able to get a hold of him," she said.

No other auto shop would do the job for such a low price, so the FOX31 Problem Solvers got the word out and got an immediate response.

James Garcia from Ace Towing Enterprise moved in to pick up the truck and took it to Christian Brothers Automotive, which works with area charities.

The team at Christian Brothers Automotive is diagnosing the problem and is already working with their partner charities to find help.
