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.
