LANDSKRONA, Sweden, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- A statue of Nobel-winning Swedish author Selma Lagerlof was found in some bushes hours after it was noticed missing, officials in Landskrona, Sweden, said.

The statue was not damaged.

Lagerlof, who died at the age of 81 in 1940, was best known for her book "The Wonderful Adventures of Nils" and won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1909.
