The beloved $50,000 bronze statue stolen from the Easter Seals Children's Center has been found.
The 3' bronze sculpture depicts three children playing in the rain, and was purchased for $50,000 and gifted to the Children's Center by Irwin Belk in 2002.
Police recovered the statue Saturday after a woman found it in her yard more than a week ago. She thought her son dropped it off.
The statue will be returned to Easter Seals on Marsh Road Monday.
No one quite seems to know who took the statue in the first place.
The statue, which is part of a flower garden that sits in front of the school, was stolen sometime during the late evening of Tuesday, November 6, or early morning Wednesday, November 7, officials said.
Fifty percent of the of the students that attend the school have disabilities.
"This sculpture was a very special gift to the center and a welcome sight to children arriving to school each day. The sculpture is beloved by our organization and serves as inspiration for the children that attend our center" said Betsy Dailey, Easter Seals UCP community director.
"The person or party responsible for taking this art piece would have needed unique tools to remove the sculpture from its base. With the help of the community and police, we hope that this meaningful art piece can be returned to our school as soon as possible."
If anyone has any information about this stolen sculpture, please contact Crime Stoppers at (704) 334-1600.
