The offer of a $1000 reward has failed to produce any leads as to the whereabouts of the bronze bust of Sir Gordon Tait which vanished from outside the Timaru library overnight Saturday.

The bust, valued at between $15,000 and $20,000, was gifted to the district a year ago by the Hervey Arts Trust. Council parks and recreation manager Bill Steans remained hopeful the bust would still be recovered.y.
