WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Keeper of the Plains replica statue that was taken from a Wichita park over the weekend has been found not far from where it was stolen.
A resident spotted the statue in the grass beside a creek that runs by Colvin Elementary School, said Tessa Brungardt, who manages the Keeper project for Together Wichita. City maintenance workers retrieved the statue Monday evening, the Wichita Eagle reported.
It's too soon to say what they'll do about the damaged statue, but they might see if it can be repaired, Brungardt said.
