Two large Bigfoot statues call a yard in Chanhassen home, but now one is missing. 

According to the Carver County Sheriff's Office, it took a report Tuesday of a "replica" Bigfoot statue that had been stolen overnight from a yard. The statue is 8 feet tall and made out of sheet metal

Mr. Bigfoot was the one that was stolen. Mrs. Bigfoot, which the sheriff's office shared a picture of on Facebook, is still safe at home. Officials note the two statues look a lot alike. 

The sheriff's office is asking anyone who sees Bigfoot "out and about," if they have information on who stole him or know where he may be, to give them a call at 952-361-1231 (it's Carver County case number 20026664).
