Giant head found floating in NY river not missing


POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) - The giant floating head isn't missing after all.

Officials at Marist College in Poughkeepsie say the 300-pound Styrofoam and fiberglass replica of a man's head found floating in the Hudson River was reported missing last week.

But they tell the Poughkeepsie Journal a freshman orientation group discovered it Thursday. It's back in the water, tethered to a dock.

The Marist men's crew team originally spotted the strange object during practice and towed it back to their dock in late April.

It's still not clear where the 7-foot-tall head came from or how it ended up in the Hudson. It reportedly was part of a store display in New York City before being placed on a hill outside Oneonta by a couple who owned property in the area.
