Police are appealing for the public’s help to trace a piece of artwork that has gone missing from St Albans.
The artwork, which is worth around £3,000, was taken during a charity event at the Alban Arena, between 11pm and midnight on Saturday, December 3.
The piece was being displayed on stage next to the band and DJ and was discovered missing at the end of the night.
PC Lee Hammond, who is investigating, said: “The piece is approximately 1m x 1m in size and it’s possible that someone may have taken it thinking it was a stage prop, not realising its true value.
“I am appealing for the person who took it to please get in touch so that it can be returned to its rightful owner.
“Equally, I would like to hear from anyone else who thinks they may have come across it or seen it advertised for sale.”
