FORREST CITY, AR - The school with the motto, "You Can't Hide Our Mustang Pride," can't quite find it either.

Police are investigating the theft of the feet and body of the Forrest City High School Mustang mascot costume.  The head was left behind.

School employee Donesha Williams discovered the theft Saturday.  Police say she noticed that the box for the uniform was open in the back of her truck.  Taken were the body and shoes.

Principal Abbie Robinson says Williams had left the uniform in her truck after a game at West Memphis.  The uniform was valued at $800.

Robinson says she suspects the theft is a prank.
