LA JOLLA (CBS) — A statue of Dr. Suess’ famous character “The Lorax” has been stolen out the backyard of the author’s former San Diego-area home.

The bronze statue, worth $10,000, was stolen over the weekend, but property manager Carl Romero and Dr. Suess’ (real name: Theodore Geisel ) widow, Audrey, didn’t discover it was gone until Monday.

The two-foot statue is one of only two in the world; the other Lorax is in Massachusetts at the Dr. Seuss National Memorial.

“The Lorax” sculpture was created by the author’s daughter.

Romero believes whoever stole it has worked at the La Jolla home.

“We find it in your garden, the police find it in your garden, we’re gonna get you and we’re gonna prosecute you. So this is your opportunity to give it back,” Romero said.
