The Spanish website Bicibuscadores wants to help victims of bicycle theft spread the word when their bike is stolen and warn others. Users simply pin the location of where their bike was last seen on a map. Next, they upload a photo of it and provide as much detail as they can about the circumstances of the theft. The report then serves as a warning to other bicycle owners in the area as well as potentially helping the missing bicycle find its way back to its rightful owner.
