WORCESTER (CBS) – Police are investigating the theft of a sculpture that was part of Worcester’s Art in the Park collection.

“Unfortunately someone has chosen to remove it for their personal enjoyment,” said Gloria D. Hall, Art in the Park co-founder and presenter.

Hendry, who lives in New York City, is originally from Medway.

The artist and Art in the Park are asking for the return of the statue with no questions asked. Anyone with information can email aipworcesterma@gmail.com or call Worcester police.
