a 5-foot-tall, approximately 400-pound, hand-painted Sasquatch statue, has gone missing from a residence in Catlett, and the owners are seeking public assistance in bringing him back.
The statue was taken from the front lawn of a house on Greenwich Road, and discovered missing by Mary O’Brien, 35, who promptly turned to social media to share the news and appeal for its return.
O’Brien emphasized the sentimental value of the statue and expressed a desire for its safe return, without any questions asked.

Despite her sadness, O’Brien decided not to involve the police, attributing the theft to a potential end-of-school-year prank and recalling her own teenage years.
She believes the theft was a calculated act by individuals who possessed strength and speed, given the statue’s weight and size.
Unfortunately, the statue was damaged during the theft, with a broken piece of Bigfoot’s foot left behind in the yard.
O’Brien expressed the intention to repair the statue upon its return.
The purchase of the $600 Bigfoot statue from a masonry yard in West Virginia was a joint decision by O’Brien and her partner Matt Payne, who wanted their front yard to have a distinctive identity, inspired by a house in Manassas with white bicycles.
The statue has brought joy to the community, with people frequently stopping to take pictures with it.
O’Brien shared how Bigfoot would often be dressed up in costumes, decorated by friends for various holidays.
Although security cameras are present, they do not cover the area where Bigfoot was located, leaving the owners with no leads.
Their main request is for the statue’s prompt return, as its absence has saddened them.
