CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

The Chicago Police Department was investigating the disappearance of the Irv Kupcinetstatue when they learned the statue was not missing after all.

The Chicago Police Department began the investigation after a passerby noticed the statue was missing Friday from its base at the corner of Wacker and Wabash.

However, after looking into the disappearance, police found the statue never really went missing. It had been removed from its home Saturday for restorations.

No word on when the statue will be brought back.

The statue was dedicated in 2006 and is a tribute to the late Chicago journalist whose popular gossip column - "Kup's Column" - lasted for 60 years. The 9-foot-tall bronze statue shows Kupcinet with a Sun-Times under his arm.
