A retired NASA federal agent who has helped find stolen and missing moon rocks says he thinks whoever stole a solid-gold replica of the Apollo 11 lunar module from an OH museum will likely melt it down for its gold value.

The police department in Wapakoneta, Ohio - Armstrong's hometown and the location of the Armstrong Air and Space Museum - said in a Facebook post that it was told Friday the artifact had been stolen from the property. "This piece is one of only three to exist".

This particular replica was one given to Neil Armstrong in Paris, France shortly after the moon landing. Someone had taken the solid-gold replica 1969 Lunar Excursion Module.

The FBI and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are assisting Wapakoneta police in an investigation of the theft.
