Months after it went missing, historic Buddy Guy marker found in Pride
LETTSWORTH - Authorities have located a sign honoring Louisiana blues legend Buddy Guy after it was hit by a car and stolen earlier this year.
According to the Pointe Coupee Parish Office of Tourism, the marker was taken after it was hit by a car that went off LA 1 Saturday, May 11. Officials say the wreck knocked the sign loose from its cement-mounted post, and it was seen on the ground the day of the accident.
The marker disappeared shortly afterward. The sheriff's office says it was found at a home in Pride on Wednesday, Aug. 7, though it's unclear at this time if anyone will face charges.
Guy, who is 82, was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.
