Charleston, SC - SUMMERVILLE, SC (AP) - Authorities are searching for a missing boy in South Carolina - a bronze boy.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports officials in Summerville say a popular life-sized bronze sculpture has been stolen from a town park. It had been erected by the arts organization Sculpture in the South that has placed 20 sculptures in public spaces around the Charleston suburb.
The missing boy in a conductor's hat was part of an installation called "Follow the Leader" featuring four other children and a dog on a brick wall. Parks officials say a three-quarter inch mounting bolt on the sculpture was snapped and the statue was stolen Monday night.
Another bronze sculpture was stolen from another town park three years ago.
