The scarecrow, which features the popular character from the reality show wearing camouflage and sitting on a hay bale with his legs crossed, went missing between Wednesday night and Thursday morning in the town of Ball Ground about 50 miles north of Atlanta.
City Clerk Karen Jordan tells the Cherokee Tribune that the scarecrow was a favorite in the city's inaugural scarecrow contest.
Four moms of fourth-graders at Ball Ground Elementary School spent more than 40 hours to make the scarecrow. One of them, Allison Martin, said she couldn't believe someone would swipe their children's favorite character.
