A three-foot tall metal statue was stolen from The Nature Institute in Godfrey over the weekend, and they want it back. The Madison County Sheriff's Department is investigating the disappearance of the metal statue of a child angel. Captain Mike Dixon of the Sheriff's Department says while metal thefts often results in a trip to the scrap yard by the thief, there is reason to believe that might not be the case here.

Dixon comments

If you have any information on the location of the statue, you are asked to call the Sheriff's Office at 692-4433, or the Anonymous Tip Line at 296-3000.
