LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

Halloween mischief is in the air as Thursday night, a Longview Lobos scarecrow went missing - jersey, helmet and all - from the corner of Fredonia and Whaley Streets.

The scarecrow was last seen hanging out on some hay bales on the square in downtown Longview and the district wants him back.

"We received word this morning that the Lobo scarecrow was no longer. Just a few bales of hay and some pumpkins," says Longview Independent School District spokesman Adam Holland.

"I couldn't believe that some one would do that , that's an awful thing to do. Why would you do that?" wondered Lobo fan Earlene Cook.

Keep Longview Beautiful has been organizing the seasonal displays for ten years.

"We've got a lot of Longview lobo fans , and if they did just want to borrow it , we just hope he'll come back and visit us," says board member Carol Lee.

"An absolutely pathetic heinous act. Totally unnecessary," Holland says.

Speculation is the thieves were after the uniform.

The Pine Tree and Spring Hill school scarecrows were untouched.

"Bring the lobo back, put him back on his perch," says Holland.

The district is asking whoever has the lobo scarecrow to please return it, 'no questions asked'.
