Missing anchor not really missing

That missing anchor isn't missing after all.

A huge anchor had been reported stolen from outside the Naval Reserve Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin.

But the bad guys didn't take it -- the Navy did.

The Navy says the anchor was reclaimed when the building and property were turned over to the city before the first of the year.

No one noticed the anchor was history until last week and reported a possible theft to police.

Navy officials say they're open to returning the anchor, if the city wants to continuing using it as decorative feature.
