NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts family has been searching in vain for its “slightly sinister” statue of Ronald McDonald, which was taken from their summer home during a teenage house party.
Mary Ryan tells the Daily Hampshire Gazette (http://bit.ly/1PyDJUg ) that the three-foot-high statue of the fast food pitchman was taken in August, when her daughter hosted an unauthorized party at the house in Leverett.
Ryan says two boys put the statue in a tree at an athletic club. Someone later took it out of the tree and posted a photo of it on Instagram next to a trash bin.
The statue hasn’t been seen since.

Ryan and her husband, an artist, bought the statue years ago for $1,200. Ryan says it has a “slightly sinister quality.”
They’re offering a $300 reward.
The daughter was punished with extra chores.
