(ABC News) King Tut’s sister is missing and Egypt has issued an international alert for her return.

UNESCO and Interpol are working with Egyptian authorities to recover the priceless artifact, a limestone figurine of the young pharaoh’s sister from the 14th century BC. The young girl holds a piece of fruit and her hair flows loosely on one side–a symbol of her youth–but her head is held high, a decidedly regal look on her face.

“This constitutes irreversible damage to the history and identity of the Egyptian people,” said Irina Bokova, the Director-General of UNESCO.
