Two bronze plaques that were a part of a summer camp in Woodgate, Oneida County, for more than 40 years have been stolen.

Maintenance workers noticed the plaques at the Masonic home camp were missing on January 17 and reported it to the site manager, a spokesman for the Oneida County Sheriff's Office said.

The site manager said he wasn't sure how long they had been missing.

The plaques were placed on a cobblestone monument with a flagpole. One was inscribed with "Flag Pole Corner," and the other was inscribed with "In Memory of Dr. Willis Ford" along with other words.

Last month, the Boonville Police Department got a similar report of a bronze plaque that was stolen in a cemetery in the village of Boonville.

The exact cost of the plaques is unknown, deputies say.
