Love is missing in a Cincinnati suburb. Someone has swiped an eight-foot-long church banner that reads: "Standing on the Side of Love!"

The Rev. Bruce Russell-Jayne says the sign was donated to his Northern Hills Fellowship church in Springfield Township three weeks ago. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports it's worth about $350.

The pastor says he can't understand why anyone would steal a message of love. The congregation is buying a replacement.
