LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Someone has apparently taken off with a prize-winning Christmas wall-hanging done by an 11-year-old Lawrence boy.

Adam Leonard's quilting work won him a reserved grand champion ribbon at the Douglas County fair last week. But now the wall hanging, which qualified Adam Leonard for a State Fair entry, has been reported missing from the county fairgrounds.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports ( ) that Adam's mother, Joyce Miles, says they're asking whoever has the piece to return it anonymously. She says her son was more shocked at the loss than anything, and says if someone wanted a quilt Adam would've made them one.

Fair officials say a few other 4-H projects were also reported missing from the fairgrounds and that the Douglas County Sheriff's Office has been notified.
