FARGO - The saga of Patty Hovde's missing wheelchair rolled to a happy end Tuesday with news that it had been found.

The missing chair turned up in an unlikely location: It was discovered behind a tombstone at Springdale Cemetery in north Fargo.


Someone had apparently taken it for a boisterous joyride.

"They obviously took it off-road," said Joe Baglietto, a friend of Hovde's. "It looked like somebody was being rough with it. I got it together again."
