COLUMBUS, Ohio, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- Employees at a Georgia McDonald's said they are making holiday wishes for the safe return of a Ronald McDonald statue swiped on Thanksgiving.
Tonja Brown, manager of the McDonald's in Columbus, said Ronald was taken from a park bench in the eatery's outdoor playground Thursday afternoon, after the restaurant closed for the holiday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday.
"We were open for breakfast and had just closed," Brown said.
Brown said the playground is still open and the theft has been reported to police.
"Kids love him," she said. "We just want him back."
