    Her ebony hair perfectly parted and saucer-like eyes perpetually staring, the life-size Betty Boop statue became a local landmark on the city's Shore Drive. But Sunday morning, a patron discovered the $1,600 figure a block away from its home in front of Cool & Eclectic Furniture and Fashion without its head. Six days later, the head remained missing.

    "Without it, she's nothing," said store owner Larry Estes, who filed a police report Friday.


    Estes collected Boop's body and placed it in a storeroom. Then he began searching up and down Shore Drive.

    He is offering a free store item to anyone who comes forward with Boop's head.

    "She's made a lot of people smile," he said of the mascot. "Who would do this?"
