    An Elvis statue taken from a diner roof has been found between two angels at a nearby cemetery.

    Baltimore County police said a customer reported finding the 80-pound statue Tuesday morning at the Faith Cemetery in Overlea and returned it to the diner. Police say the customer is not considered a suspect.

    The now footless Elvis -- its feet were left bolted to the diner roof -- was taken earlier this month from the Happy Day Diner in suburban Baltimore.

    Diner owner Maria Pigiaditis said after the statue was taken that a former owner bought the fiberglass Elvis for $1,500 in 2001, and until the theft he had only been taken down once for a "facelift" after a storm.
