"Have you found Jesus?" That's what employees at a Rhode Island soup kitchen are asking after a religious statue disappeared from the kitchen's garden.

Pawtucket Soup Kitchen Director Adrienne Marchetti told the Valley Breeze on Wednesday that she last saw the statue, which depicts Joseph carrying the baby Jesus, on July 20.

Marchetti says the kitchen staff will take back the statue, no questions asked, and even offer a free meal to the person who returns it.

Marchetti says the 2-foot statue is made of ceramic or clay and is not valuable.

She says the statue inspires the volunteers at the kitchen.
