BASKING RIDGE - The owner of a baby Jesus statue is asking for it's return after it was presumably stolen from a Basking Ridge nativity scene.

The last time the owner remembers seeing the statue was in front of his Mount Airy Road home on Christmas Day, and he noticed it was missing on Dec.27.

Bernards Township Police Detective Lt. Michael Voorhees says his department is doing everything they can to get the statue back to it's owner. "We did a canvas of the area, and talked to other towns to see if we can get it returned," he says.

The family has put up a sign asking whomever took the baby Jesus to return it to the manger. The statue is valued at $300.
