Baby Je­sus goes miss­ing

Antelope Valley Press - - Second Front -

TAL­LA­HAS­SEE, Fla. — On the sixth day of Christ­mas, Baby Je­sus van­ished from his manger in a pop­u­lar na­tiv­ity scene at a Florida park — right un­der the noses of Mary, Joseph and bow­ing kings.

The dis­ap­pear­ance of the replica star­tled eight-yearold Nate Takacs, who had rushed to get a glimpse of an­gels and the in­fant Sav­ior only to find an empty crib at the dis­play at Dorothy B. Oven Park in Tal­la­has­see. The park each year hosts a well-traf­ficked and col­or­ful Christ­mas dis­play.

City of­fi­cials could not im­me­di­ately say what had hap­pened to the first Baby Je­sus. And they couldn’t con­firm if the dis­ap­pear­ance was the re­sult of foul play.

By Tues­day, a dif­fer­ent in­fant was taken out of stor­age and placed into the manger.
