Moe is missing  from the Manatee Center

Moe, the mascot from the  Manatee Center has been missing since early Friday morning. He has been stolen from its spot outside the Manatee Observation and Education Center in downtown Ft. Pierce.

For 20 years Moe has stood outside the Manatee Observation and Education Center. Moe, the center’s mascot, was stolen last week sometime between Thursday evening and Friday morning. He’s made of solid fiberglass, weighs 75 pounds, and stands 5 feet tall. There’s a reward for information that leads to Moe’s safe return. Estimates to get a new statue range from $700 to $1000. Ft. Pierce Police are investigating.

 “For almost 20 years, this adorable iconic mammal has stood watch over our environmental center at Moore’s Creek. He has been photographed hundreds of thousands of times by visitors from around the globe and will be missed by legions of children and adults alike.” said the spokesman from the Manatee Center on their Facebook page.

He recently had a facelift, courtesy of alternative spring breakers  from Plymouth State University.

The volunteers say losing the statue is almost like losing a member of their family.

If you have an information about Moe and can help with his safe return call the Ft Pierce Police at 772-467-3000.
