Police search for little Bigfoot stolen in W. Pa.

BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (AP) — Police in one western Pennsylvania community are searching for Bigfoot — but this quest has a better chance of success than most.

That’s because the Bigfoot being sought by the North Sewickley Township police actually exists — though police say the 28-inch statue of the Yeti has been missing from the planting bed in front of Mary Fabian’s home since at least Monday.

Fabian tells the Beaver County Times (http://bit.ly/11hYxb3 ) she bought the statue online four years ago and named him Harry after the 1987 film, “Harry and the Hendersons,” in which a family befriends a Sasquatch.

Acting police Chief Jeff Becze says investigators haven’t found any footprints — human or Yeti — or other clues as to who might have taken the statue.
