A Buddhist temple on Maui is seeking the public’s help in recovering a stolen bell.
Wailuku Jodo Mission resident minister John Hara said he noticed the temple bell was missing at 5:30 p.m. today.
“We don’t know exactly when it was stolen, but we are hoping that the public may know something or seen something,” Hara said on Facebook tonight.
The bell, cast from an unknown metal, was usually rung on Sundays before 8 a.m. services, Hara said by phone.
The mission, founded in 1914, is located in an old section of Wailuku at 67 Central Avenue.
