A baby Jesus figurine from a nativity scene that was stolen from the Valencia Westfield Town Center was returned Thursday, according to a published report.

“One of our staff members found him here on the property, and we’re very grateful that he’s back,” Stacie House of the Valencia Westfield Town Center told the Daily News.

House said she didn’t know all the details of where and how the figure was found, but added, “most importantly, he’s been returned.”

The baby Jesus figurine, which went missing Monday, is loaned to the mall each year by Grace Baptist Church in Santa Clarita, House told the Daily News.

The figurine is showcased in an outdoor Nativity display in the patios area of the mall.

“We are so grateful that he’s back as part of our holiday tradition here,” House told the Daily News. “It’s certainly a part of the magic of the holiday.”
