Buzz Ferrell, left, and Merlin Hagy check out the anchor which was taken from Hagy's yard almost two weeks ago. The approximately 250-pound sculpture created by Ferrell for his father-in-law was recovered by Sikeston Department of Public Safety officers with the assistance of officers from the Scott County Sheriff's Department and returned Friday. Hagy said the anchor, which commemorates his service in the Navy from 1961-65, will be anchored more securely to deter thieves.
