In a Facebook post, Roswell police said, “Be on the lookout: missing spaceship.” Earlier this year a blizzard knocked the model from its display on the side of the museum’s building, and it was being stored under a awning in an alley behind the museum.

Police are urging people to be on the lookout of a spaceship that looks out of place in Roswell.
