ISLE OF SHEPPY, England, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- A British woman said her family is offering an unspecified reward for the return of a life-size statue of Al Capone that disappeared from her yard.

Pauline McCook said the statue of the notorious gangster at her Isle of Sheppy, England, home was like "part of the family" and would be covered in decorations annually for Christmas, the BBC reported Monday.

A police representative said the statue, which is believed to have been taken between Dec. 1 and Dec. 10, was "an extremely unusual item to steal." Police said the "extremely heavy" fiberglass statue would have required more than one person to move and the thieves would have required a vehicle for transport.
