(WASHINGTONPOST) — One Pennsylvania woman can now sleep easy. The case of the missing life-size Obama statue has been solved. The statue was found last week on a Pennsylvania park bench with a bottle of Twisted Tea in the president’s hand and a six-pack beside him.
Wilkes-Barre resident Tiffany Bruce told the Scranton Times-Tribune that the statue had been missing since July of last year. She couldn’t understand why anyone would steal it. Bruce was so upset by the theft that she had to be hospitalized for a panic attack, reports the Associated Press. “I freaked …I couldn’t breathe, my eyes were red and watery,” she told the Scranton Times-Tribune.

Bruce purchased the statue at a furniture store last year and her family fell in love with it. She and her five kids decorated it for the holidays: Santa Claus for Christmas, with pumpkins on Thanksgiving. After it disappeared, her children asked: “What did you do with Obama?”
