No sign of bust
The bronze bust of Sir Gordon Tait has still not been found.
It vanished from its bluestone plinth outside the Timaru Public Library overnight on December 1.
The bust, weighing about 35kg, was donated to the district a year ago by the Hervey Arts' Trust. The council put up a reward of $1000 for information leading to the conviction of those involved in the theft.
