A small statue of Marilyn Monroe has been stolen from the top of the Ladies of Hollywood Gazebo, a popular landmark at Hollywood Boulevard, reports PTI.

There are also statues of other actors like Dolores Del Rio, Dorothy Dandridge, Mae West, and Anna May Wong but Monroe’s statue was placed on the top of all.
As per a report by PTI, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) had initially received a call from a citizen who reported seeing someone on top of the gazebo late Sunday night, but the statue was still there when the police had arrived to investigate. The statue was found missing on Monday.
