BRAZORIA, Texas (AP) — A figure of the baby Jesus has been returned, a year after it was stolen from a Nativity scene.

The figure and the manger that held it were stolen last December from the display off Highway 36 in Brazoria, about 55 miles south of Houston.

The figure mysteriously returned sometime last week.

Resident Bill James said he and his family noticed on Dec. 16 that strong winds had knocked over the figures in the display, and went over to fix them.

"When I went over to stand them up, I saw that the Jesus was back in the manger," he said.
