Tombstone stolen from veteran's gravesite

(WMC-TV) – A veteran's gravesite is missing its tombstone, after police in Jonesboro, Arkansas, say a thief took off with it.

Investigators say the grave robber stole the marker off of the grave of a World War I veteran in the local cemetery.

Bobbie Hindman says she tends to her family's plot every month. She was the person who discovered that her uncle's bronze plated military tombstone had been stolen. Hindman says she just wants it back.

"Oh, it would make me feel so good to know it's back, then I could continue putting my flowers out. His flag's still out there I put out. He was in the service. Everything else is just gone," said Hindman.

No arrests have been made in the tombstone theft.
