As of Monday afternoon, Bernards Township police said that a Baby Jesus statue stolen from an almost life-sized Nativity scene on Mount Airy Road still had not been returned. 

Police Capt. Ed Byrnes added in response to a question that police also had no leads as of Monday.

Meanwhile the home from which the statue had been taken still had out a sign asking, "Can you please return our Baby Jesus."

Bernards Township police said the figure was reported to be missing two days after Christmas from the front lawn of the home at 2 Mount Airy Road, which is near West Oak Street.

According to police, Patrol Officer Anthony Severino responded to a report that the owner discovered the figure to be missing when he went out to collect his mail at about noon on Dec. 27.

The large Nativity set reportedly has been facing Mount Airy Road, police said.

Police said that the owner told them the last time he saw the baby Jesus statue was some time on Dec. 25. The owner reportedly could not provide police with the name of any suspects.

The owner estimated the value of the stolen statue at $300.
