ONTARIO, OH - The Marshall Park Festival of Lights is offering a $250 reward for the safe return of a wooden cutout of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, which was stolen from the park sometime Sunday evening.

The light show is put on each year by Gary and Lynn Levelius, and many of the decorations they use for the display are handcrafted by the couple.

On Monday the Marshall Park Festival of Lights' Facebook page posted a public plea regarding the cutout. It stated that the decoration had been seen as late as 7:30 PM on Sunday night, but was found missing at 7:55 PM. Two vehicles were seen pulling away from the display during that time frame, but it is unknown if they were involved.

A police report has been filed with the Ontario Police Department, and a $250 reward is being offered for Rudolph's safe return, as well as any information leading to the arrest of the responsible party.
