Palm Beach police are investigating the disappearance of a $10,000 copper sculpture of two seated lifeguards from the multimillion-dollar home of disgraced investment guru Bernard Madoff (MAY'-dawf).
Police spokeswoman Janet Kinsella said Tuesday a housekeeper reported the statue missing Dec. 22.
The Wall Street money manager was arrested several weeks ago on securities fraud charges. Authorities say Madoff claims he lost more than $50 billion belonging to investors, including major banks, charities, schools and retirees. Many lost their entire life savings.
Madoff met many investors in Palm Beach, where he was a part-time resident. He remains under house arrest in Manhattan.
