Boston police say a bronze duckling named Pack has been recovered after being stolen from the beloved "Make Way For Ducklings" sculpture in the city's Public Garden.

A park ranger had discovered Pack's theft early Monday.

Police say the sculpture was found by residents at about 2:40 a.m. Tuesday. The duckling was next to a tree on a street corner not far from the garden.

Pack is the next to last of the eight ducklings lined up behind Mrs. Mallard in the sculpture inspired by Robert McCloskey's children's book "Make Way for Ducklings," in which a family of ducks walks across a highway to get to the garden.

He's not the first to be stolen. Quack, Mack and Jack have gone missing over the years. All were recovered or replaced.
