A historic statue is missing from the National Trails Museum in Independence.
Museum employees noticed "The Pioneer Woman" was missing Monday morning. They said the statue was ripped from its granite base.
The statue, located at the back of the museum, was commissioned by community leaders. The city is offering a $5,000 reward for the statue's return.
