'Saint of Lost Items' is lost; statue of St. Anthony reported missing

Email

When Catholics lose something, they pray to St Anthony.

And in Green Bay, St. Anthony himself is lost after somebody stole his statue from a secluded chapel on the University of Wisconsin campus.

The 4-and-one-half-foot statue was discovered missing on Sunday.

Joan Jadin, whose family takes care of the chapel, says it might have been stolen last Saturday - which is the Feast Day of St. Anthony.

The chapel is an old limestone structure that's never locked. It's located in the UW-Green Bay Arboretum.

Campus police said the heavy statue was dragged along a path outside the chapel, and it could have been dumped in the nearby woods.

Jadin says the chapel has always been a place of comfort for people and her family is offering a reward for information.
