Default O/T moral question

ok so Ava got a little ride push toy for her bday, she loves it, and its so great for me to use to walk the dog and Ava together. I live on the third floor of our condo complex, so usually leave it right outside the door outside the main door. I know everyone from here and they know me to be the one pushing her and Lily 4 times a day. Well Thursday night it was missing from our front entrance. I was so mad, becasue i love it and she's only had it a month ir so. Well today i got out of my car and saw a car, exact to hers, sitting on the porch on the patio to the building next to ours. they have a son a bit older than Ava, but you never see them outside at all. I know they have not had one , but how do i go about asking them about it? I do not want to accuse them, becasue maybe the wind blew its and they found it, or something like that. I do not know them well enough so need to be careful how i approach this, what do you all suggest. I know that everyone from this complex knows that its mione, and its always in front of our place. so what would you all do

How about knocking on their door and saying, "hey, you might want to keep that push car inside because I had one exactly like it that disappeared last week". Don't say "stollen" or accuse them, just open up the discussion and maybe they'll fess up.

If it's on their porch and you know it's yours I'd just go take it.

*Maybe* they thought that since it was sitting outside it wasn't wanted?
 
Or you could at least approach with that as an "out" for them? I would definitely come up with a plan for asking them about it though!!

I would definetely want to ask them about it, I like the idea of saying that you had one go missing from the front of your building, so you just wanted to let them know, hopefully if they are honest they will fess up... I am sorry that she lost her toy... I hope if that is the one, that you get it back!
