Authorities on the East Coast are searching for Bigfoot. No, really.
Vermont State Police are hunting for a Sasquatch sculpture reportedly swiped from a Westford couple’s driveway over the weekend.
The couple purchased the 8-pound, 15-inch-tall Yeti from a SkyMall magazine.
Police say the statue is valued at around $100, the Associated Press reported, and the owners would be satisfied if it was simply returned to their front lawn.
In addition to police efforts, the couple is using community network Front Porch Forum to search for the sculpture.
Anyone who spots the missing Sasquatch need not approach the beast, but instead should contact the Vermont State Police barracks in Williston.
