A bronze sculpture of an eagle taken last week from a Forsyth County recreational area is still missing.
The sculpture was located at the Bethelview Road trail head of the Big Creek Greenway multi-use trail in south Forsyth. Officials believe the sculpture was taken on Aug. 27 or 28.
"There are no new developments regarding the missing sculpture," said Jodi Gardner, director of communications for the county, in an e-mail to Cumming Patch. "Anyone with information is asked to contact the at 770-781-3047."
The eagle sculpture is estimated to be approximately 6 feet tall, with an approximately 8-foot wingspan. It weighs approximately 400 pounds and was funded by a grant. The sculpture was installed at the trail head in April.
“This is the first time something of this nature has occurred at a Forsyth County park or recreational area,” said Jerry Kinsey, Parks and Recreation director. “It is certainly our hope that the sculpture will be returned.”
