CENTER HARBOR - A piece from a historical statue is missing, and the town is offering a $500 reward for information that leads to its safe return or the arrest of the person responsible for taking it.

The item is a bronze feather removed from the head of an Indian boy that's part of the Kona Fountain statue at the intersection of Plymouth and Main streets.

Police say the theft was discovered on Oct. 14.

The statue, sculpted by Richard Gerry Cook, dates back to 1907 when it was donated by Herbert Dumaresq to the town of Center Harbor.

The statue has historical value to the town and the region, police say. Anyone with information is asked to call Center Harbor police at 253-9756.
