Someone stole the Ronald McDonald statue from in front of the Ronald McDonald House in Denver.
The theft happened sometime Tuesday night.
The House provides a temporary home for families who have children who are in long-term hospital care.
"It just makes you sad because at a place like Ronald McDonald House where families are in crisis, that somebody would think it's a great thing to steal Ronald," said Executive Director Pam Whitaker.
Whitaker says she hopes someone returns Ronald, if not they will have to rely on fundraising to replace him.
