Aidan Leas (center), 13, of Joplin looks over an iPad Mini display with his best friend Dany Koff (right), 13, of Joplin, and his sister, Parker Leas, 10, just before buying one Wednesday evening, Sept. 25, 2013, at Joplin's Best Buy. Leas has a learning disability and relied on his iPad for communication -- it came up missing on his birthday, believed to have been stolen. Some good Samaritans who found out via Facebook about the situation and pulled together money to help the boy replace it.
