One of the 31 butterfly sculptures in the "Butterflies and Friends" downtown exhibit is missing.

Harold Eichenbaum, a member of the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs, which sponsors the service project, noticed the butterfly was gone on Sunday, and filed a police report on Monday.

"It's a shame that someone chose to steal this work of art that the artist spent so much time preparing," wrote John Buckley, president of the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs, in an email.

The butterfly, designed by Marlena Whitt and Tena Cobb, is titled, "More than Glass." It was located in front of Touch of Class Gift Shop at 2419 W. Colorado Ave.
