Details are sketchy as we write this at 10:00 am Tuesday, but Queen charlotte RCMP are on the scene, putting the statue back in place, according to a police spokesperson.
The Lawn Point statue was apparently found on the water side of the highway, not far from where it usually sits. It was reported missing on Sunday, prompting Queen Charlotte businessman Jack Greenwood to offer a $1,000 reward for its recovery.
