(CNN) – Someone has kidnapped naked Trump, the hardened foam version. He was standing atop a warehouse flashing drivers headed into New York City through the Holland tunnel. Now naked Trump’s been taken back, we know not where.

Surveillance video shows a guy running across the roof to the statue. He used a ladder to reach a fire escape to climb up. The thief spent three and a half hours on the roof. At one point he notices the camera and covers it with a bag.

At 3:10 a.m. he leaves, and at the same time, a police car arrives, leading the property owner to wonder if police were in on it, or were they simply answering a burglary call somehow triggered by the thief.

Last week more locks were installed after someone tried to break in through a door. The arts organization that erected naked Trump, called mana contemporary, accuses trump of bigotry and is preparing a billboard depicting him as the joker.

The joke’s on us to think that just a few days ago we were up on the roof pulling the Donald’s leg.

Now the story’s got legs Jersey City police say they’re investigating. Where oh where is naked Trump?
