Stolen Artifact - be on the lookout!

Please see the following important information and report anything you may know. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

Dear Deb,

I wanted to let you know about this, on the off-chance that someone in the local community of collectors might hear about it. We had a Danish Neolithic sickle stolen from the Anthropology Collections. It's 18cm (just over 7") in length, and has been broken and reglued. Photos are attached below. It's accession number 882.7.190 (written on the piece in red, if it hasn't been removed). Not extremely valuable, but it's an important piece for the Collections.

All best,
