ROANOKE, Va., May 7 (UPI) -- A Virginia couple said they are seeking the return of two alien statues abducted from their front yard.

Robert and Dian Bolling of Roanoke said the 3-foot-tall green alien yard decorations were taken from their yard sometime between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on April 22, The Roanoke Times reported Tuesday.

The couple said the statues decorated the yard of their old home for about a decade and migrated to the yard of their new home when they moved in 2011.

The Bollings said they paid about $20 each for the aliens at a post-Halloween sale.

Police are investigating the thefts.
