Massive boulder nicknamed 'wizard rock,' weighing 1 ton mysteriously taken from National Park

In a baffling act of thievery, a 1-ton boulder was somehow snatched from the side of a highway in Arizona's Prescott National Forest about two weeks ago. Now, forest officials are asking the public for help to recover the hefty loot.

The stately black boulder, commonly called "Wizard Rock" by locals, was a special staple of the community, said Prescott National Forest in a news release.

"It's unfortunate when we lose a treasure such as the Wizard Rock," said Sarah Clawson, district ranger for the Bradshaw Ranger District, in a statement. "Our hope is that it will be returned to us, and these recent recurring events will become an educational opportunity."

That's a pretty big rock it shouldn't be that hard to find. Whoever has it can't do anything with it now that the whole world knows it's stolen.
