KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (AP) - Maine police say a sign welcoming people into the coastal town of Kennebunkport has been stolen. Police said Friday in a Facebook post that the “Welcome to Kennebunkport” sign posted off the side of the Lanigan Bridge has gone missing.

The bridge is a popular spot for visitors and tourists to take photos, often with the sign in the background.
