UPDATE: 'George the Mannequin' has been found

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The manhunt for a missing one-armed mannequin named George is over.

A family friend of George's owner says police brought back the mannequin in one piece, minus his already missing arm.

Officers found George in a ditch on Browns Lane.

The hunt for the mannequin began Monday morning after he was stolen from Joe Blades' front yard on Taylorsville Road. Blades has had George for the past 25 years.

For the last five years, every two or three weeks Blades dressed George in a different outfit and put him in a different spot around the yard doing things like gardening, beekeeping, painting and playing the guitar.

"He's like part of the family. Everyone knows him," Blades said.

There's no word on exactly who's responsible for stealing the mannequin.
