VANCOUVER, Wash. (KOIN) – The head of a 10-foot tall metal statue that sits along the Columbia Waterfront Trail in Vancouver has been stolen.
The Columbian newspaper reports that the head of “Wendy Rose” was discovered missing sometime between May 7 and May 11. The head consists of a red glass polka dot scarf.
The stainless steel statue is named after Wendy the Welder and Rosie the Riveter. According to the city, it is a tribute to the men and women who worked in the Kaiser Shipyards during World War II.
The statue, unveiled in 2007, was constructed by a group of artists known as Women Who Weld. It is located about one-mile east of the Interstate Bridge.
Anyone with information on the theft should contact Vancouver police.
