No word on Luigi's whereabouts

LUIGI, the life-sized statue of an Italian chef, abducted from the Sheoak Shack on Saturday has still not been returned.

Sheoak Shack owner Andrea McKay said there has been no word on the welfare of Luigi three days after he was kidnapped from Fingal Head.

The much-loved mascot of the cafe gallery was stolen at about 8pm Saturday night from the footpath.

Luigi has greeted customers to the Sheoak Shack for about two years before his was taken.

Melissa Putra was working that night and pursued the kidnappers but was unable to rescue Luigi.

Tweed police said they have not received any reports about the theft.
