The car, which displayed the victim’s blue disability badge in the window, had a tow bar attached.
The 37-year-old victim said: “I have spina bifida and hydrocephalus and so rely on my car and wheelchair to help me get around.
“With them both gone I am now stuck at home. Neighbours and friends have offered to help, but I don’t like to rely on people.
“I am devastated. I can’t understand someone who would do this. They really are the lowest of the low.”
Witnesses, or anyone with any information about the whereabouts of the car or wheelchair, is asked to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
