Found: Virgin Mary statue
By Billy Stidham
The Berryville Police Department is trying to help the Virgin Mary find her way home.
On Tuesday, the department announced in a Facebook post that a statue of the Virgin Mary had been found in town and police are trying to locate the statue’s owner.
Police Chief Robert Bartos said a caller had found the statue in their yard. Fearing that someone stole the statue, the caller reported it to the authorities.
Bartos said the statue may have not even come from a local residence and likely was stolen from someone’s lawn as a prank and discarded randomly.
Bartos urges anyone who may have lost a similar statue to contact the Berryville Police Department and describe the statue in order to retrieve it.
