Baby Jesus goes missing
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.
