SHARE Ohio family, police search for stolen Sasquatch

CINCINNATI (AP) — A southwest Ohio family is searching for Sasquatch.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Spence family in Delhi Township, west of Cincinnati, says their 400-pound cement statue of the mythical beast was stolen Saturday.

Sixty-one-year-old Ralph Spence says his two sons bought the statue for him several years ago. They affectionately call it “Squashy.”

Though it started out as a practical joke, the statue became part of the family. They even dress it up for holidays.

Delhi Township police are assisting in the search. Lt. Joseph Macaluso says he’s seen his share of thefts, but nothing like this.

Spence says he doesn’t want to file charges against whoever took the statue, he just wants it back.

He says Squashy is “a legend around here in the neighborhood.”
