VENTNOR, N.J. (AP) - Police in southern New Jersey are trying to find the owner of a 20-pound bust of a man that was found on a shore town’s boardwalk in November.

Ventnor police officers don’t know who owns it or whom it depicts. But they’ve been sending out fliers, going door-to-door and staging a social media campaign to try to find out.

The more than a foot-tall sculpture carries few clues other than the word HILDA etched near the bottom next to the number 72.

Officers found the bust on the boardwalk after a spate of burglaries that are typical in shore towns during the winter months. Police believe it was probably stolen from a burglarized home.
