EAST WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) - A wildcat is missing in East Wenatchee.

Somebody stole the wildcat logo from its spot about 30 feet above the entrance of Eastmont High School.

Police say the school's head custodian reported the fixture missing Friday.

Principal Mark Marney says the logo was affixed very high on the two-story building, near lettering that spells out Eastmont. He says whoever took it during the school's current winter break likely would have had to get on the roof to remove it or knock it down.

The school has been on break since Dec. 19, with classes scheduled to resume Wednesday.

The plastic logo - about 3 feet wide - was purchased about three years ago by the Eastmont Associated Student Body.

Police say they have no suspects, but that nothing else was reported missing from the school.
