BOSTON (AP) — Perhaps the thief thought if he couldn’t walk in former Boston Mayor Kevin White’s footsteps, he’d just take them.
Police say they are investigating the apparent theft of six oversized bronze footprints that had been embedded in the sidewalk near a statue of the former mayor.
The footsteps led to a larger-than-life statue of White, who served as mayor from 1968 until 1984.
Officials think the theft took place last weekend and police are reviewing surveillance video from the area near City Hall and Faneuil Hall. Another of the footprints stolen several months ago has not been recovered.

The Pablo Eduardo-designed sculpture was dedicated in 2006.
White is credited with revitalizing the area around Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, now among the city’s most popular tourist spots.
