OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — An Olathe man says he went out of his way to help a friend in need by loaning him his motorcycle. Days later it's stolen, but luckily he caught it all on tape.

"It's just the way I was raised...to help," said Cord Bradley.

So when Bradley saw a friend's Facebook post, he knew something was going on and that he needed to help.

"He's like man, my bike broke down after my car," said Bradley. "I said well I got a bike do you want to borrow it. He said he was going to get a rental and I said man save your money, borrow my bike."

Bradley dropped off his Yamaha R6, so his friend would have a way to get around. Then, a few days ago, he got a call from his friend.

"My buddy called me and he goes, hey did you pick up your bike? I said no man. I thought he was joking with me," Bradley said.

He wasn't. The bike was no where to be found.

"It's just gone," said Bradley.

Then he got a call from his friend's neighbor, who says two men stole his bike and he has it all on camera.

"They're scouting the bikes," said Bradley.

In the video, you see two men attempt to ride off on a blue motorcycle, but it's locked. They then test out Bradley's and run off with it.

"A lot of summer plans just walked away with that bike," said Bradley.

Bradley's brother Levi just got back from serving with the Marines. They had summer plans to hop on their bikes and drive around the country but now because he tried to help a friend those plans aren't possible.

"It makes me want to destroy the goodness in my heart," said Bradley. "I know I gotta keep the goodness out there."

He wants you to take a good look at these faces and help him find the men responsible.

"You guys are on video," said Bradley. "Your face is clear as day. I hope the police catch you."

If you see the bike or have any information about the case, please call the Overland Park Police Department at (913) 895-6300.
