Baby Jesus Goes Missing; 'We Just Want Him Back'

From Illinois-

Dennis Fornoff, the sexton of St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Des Plaines, saw the one-foot long Baby Jesus in his manger at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 20.

The next morning, a woman in the neighborhood informed him that the figurine was gone.

"I built the manger in my garage and my family donated the figurines. Seven or eight are still there and the manger," Fornoff told the Journal & Topics Newspapers. "These are heavy ceramic figurines painted in different colors and are very realistic looking."

The nativity was well lit.

A report has been filed with the Des Plaines Police Dept. and appears in the Des Plaines Journal's Dec. 28 edition Police Blotter.
