CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Workers arrived at the Sardis Presbyterian Church Wednesday morning to find a surprise: a statue of the Virgin Mary sitting on the steps of the Sanctuary.

The two-foot-tall statue is somewhat weathered, and appears to have come from someone's lawn, a church spokesperson says.

Church officials would like to reunite the statuette with its rightful owner.

If you're missing your Virgin Mary statue, or no someone who is, contact the Sardis Presbyterian Church at (704) 366-1854
