Police: Baby Jesus statue outside of Florida church missing

- Police say a baby Jesus statue that was part of a Nativity scene outside of a Florida church is missing.

The Palm Beach Post reports the statue outside of the Cathedral of St. Ignatius in Palm Beach Gardens was discovered missing Wednesday. Police spokesman Paul Rogers says the statue is "relatively light" and is about 2 feet (0.6 meters) long.

Church members last saw the statue on Christmas Day. Police spokesman Paul Rogers says they later noticed it was missing and asked staff members if anyone had removed it. St. Ignatius filed a police report and investigators are working with the church to review surveillance-camera footage in the area.

St. Ignatius desperately wants the statue returned.
