COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - A painting of the original Texas A&M; University mascot Reveille I missing since the 1990s has been recovered.

A&M; officials in College Station on Wednesday afternoon planned to unveil the artwork of the much-beloved dog.

School authorities on Tuesday announced university police located the painting done in 1943 by College Station artist Marie Haines. Donations helped pay for the artwork commissioned by students and faculty, then presented to the school.

The Reveille I painting disappeared while in storage during renovation of the Military Science Building. The issue was recently revisited in a news story for a Texas A&M; former students group.

Corps of Cadets Center curator Lisa Kalmus says she received a tip about someone years ago seeing the painting at a home. University police retrieved the painting last month.
