For many in the Treasure Valley he is the reason for the season, but the baby Jesus that was part of a local church's nativity scene might be missing the celebration of his birth this year.

According to KTVB the baby figurine from The Journey of Lights Church nativity scene went missing on Tuesday.  The church posted their own humorous take on the theft, but in all sincerity would really like whoever stole the figurine to return it to its rightful place in the manger. This theft puts Idaho on the map of 2015 baby Jesus thefts with New Jersey, North Carolina and Indiana.

Unfortunately it appears that Jesus has grown up and started his Journey of Faith as he is now missing from our manger at the churches display but the display must go on :) Praying for a safe Journey for Jesus
