Scarecrow 'Diver Dave' Gone Missing
By: Diana T. Barth
Information is being sought in the Sunday night "kidnapping" of Diver Dave, who was snatched from his Main Street, Buzzards Bay, post some time after 10 PM.
When last seen, the straw-stuffed diver was wearing a wetsuit, goggles, and a snorkel. Yellow straw is usually strewn in Dave's wake, but since no traces were found at the scene, investigators speculate that Dave was snatched from the street by vehicle.
At the time he went missing, Dave was working as a submission to the Buzzards Bay Beautification Group's October 17 Pumpkin and Scarecrow contest.
BBBG members say Dave is sorely missed.
Therefore, the Buzzards Bay Beautification Group and his family have posted his photo and asked for assistance in his return- NO questions asked.
A replacement scarecrow has been put up, but the family that created Diver Dave for the contest hope that he will be returned.
What they think was a Halloween prank could, if repeated, derail the fun of this coming Saturday's event. Anyone with information on the incident can call BBBG President Diane Flynn at 508-759-6123.
