A 7-foot-tall statue of Elvis appears to have been stolen from the roof of a Rosedale, Md., diner.

All that's left of the beloved statue is part of his feet, said Maria Pigiaditis, owner of the Happy Day Diner.

Pigiaditis and her husband contacted Baltimore County Police after customers alerted them of the loss. The couple also turned over surveillance tapes to police that show a white van pulling up to the building overnight Wednesday.

The diner's former owner bought the fiberglass statue for $1,500 in 2001, and since then, he's only been down once for a "facelift" following a storm, Pigiaditis said.

The Pigiaditis family is checking eBay for any signs of the statue.
