Wow, this is the type of post no one wants to read. I really wish there was something worthwhile anyone here could say, but that's hardly ever the case.
Was the bike new?
If anything, I can say for myself that miracles do happen once in a while. I once had a really nice ($$) mountain bike stolen. Of literally dozens if not close to a hundred people I know who have had their bike stolen (on a university campus. Bike theft is daily), I'm the only person I personally know that has ever gotten their bike back. One day I was driving with some friends in the car around the suburbs, and (from their perspective) I suddenly braked, put the hand brake on, opened the door and ran off leaving them sitting in a stopped car in the middle of a busy street. I think I muttered "my bike" as I ran off haha. I actually spotted my bike simply because I recognized the little flashing brake light under the seat. Despite them doing a shitload of changes to it, about a week or two after the theft. It was so different that for a second I suspected it wasn't even my bike and I was giving shit to a stranger. But I got my bike back! I dare say getting a bike is actually a lot more rare than getting a motorcycle back. They're easy to sell, police don't help at all for something that is relatively cheap compared to an actual motor-vehicle, have no paperwork, and are trivial to ship somewhere else. I still get fuzzy inside just remembering that story.
Anyway, I hope you have the same miracle story.
