Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

Saluto was biking to the River Market when he was hit and killed near Independence and Tracy in April of 2016 .

Shortly after it happened, members of the cycling community installed what’s known as a “ghost bike” at the scene of the crash. Ghost bikes, painted in all white, are used around the country to memorialize the lives of cyclists killed.

But earlier this year, Saluto’s ghost bike went missing.

“We’re not entirely sure what happened, whether it was stolen or something else happened,” BikeWalkKC Policy Coordinator Michael Kelley said.
