North Vancouver RCMP would be happy to reunite this statuette with its owner. Do you know what's dangling from the bough?

Is it a cherub on a swing? A welcome sign? A child playing a flute?

Only the owner of a mysterious miniature statue likely knows what’s dangling from the golden bough.

And if it’s yours, the North Vancouver RCMP would be happy to hand it back.

Police said the small gold-coloured statue of something dangling from a tree branch was discovered inside a blue bag that had been tossed into a yard near West First Street and Mahon Avenue on April 8.

Police don’t know how the statue came to be there, but would be happy to reunite it with its owner, said Sgt. Peter DeVries, spokesman for the North Vancouver RCMP.

DeVries added the statue is not made of actual gold.

So far, nobody has come forward to claim it.

The owner should know what's behind the rectangle obscuring the photo, he added. If it's yours, contact Const. Daniel An at the North Vancouver RCMP's non-emergency line, 604-985-1311.
