    Police are investigating the theft of a statue set up in a Massachusetts yard as tribute to a Marine that was killed in Iraq.

    Mashpee Police Chief Scott Carline says the life-size silhouette of a kneeling soldier went missing from the front yard of a Mashpee home Sunday morning.

    The statue was made in honor of Daniel McGuire, who died in August 2008 at the age of 19. The McGuires have since replaced the statue with a sign that reads "Put It Back."

    In a statement, the family says the statue "means nothing to those that removed it, but it means a great deal to our family."
