A baby Jesus figure that was stolen from a nativity scene in Texas a year ago has returned.

The doll and the manger were stolen last December from the display in the town of Brazoria.

The doll mysteriously reappeared sometime last week. A resident says he was trying to stand up figures that had been knocked down by strong winds when he noticed the baby Jesus there.

Police have no suspects or leads in the theft of the doll, but the town's mayor says residents are just glad the figure is back.
