"I have no idea why someone would want to steal it," restaurant owner, Rene Guardarrama, told KSN. "If the girl sees this, we just want baby Jesus back because that's the most important part of the Nativity scene."

By Monday, a customer had brought by a replacement.

One of our customers gifted us a new baby Jesus. Thank you for all the love and support from our customers 🤗
