This undated photo taken by Henry and Wanda Sandoz and made
available Wednesday, Oct. 7, 2009, by the Liberty Legal Institute
shows the memorial known as the "Mojave Cross", on an outcrop known
as Sunrise Rock in the Mojave National Preserve, in Calif.
Authorities say the 7-foot-tall cross that sparked a U.S. Supreme
Court dispute has been stolen. The National Park Service says
someone cut the metal bolts holding the metal-pipe cross to the top
of Sunrise Rock and made off with it Sunday night, May 9, 2010 or
before dawn on Monday.
