The investigation is underway and she wasn’t ready to comment further on the matter. 

Kristinn Jónasson, mayor of Snæfellsbær, intends to meet Sunna at the Living Art Museum this week. He has not commented on the reason for the theft or who was responsible for it.

The bronze statue was placed inside a steel rocket outside the museum when it was found. The suspect, or suspects, are still at large.
