Pierre the Voyager's arm fell off possibly Tuesday afternoon. He also lost his canoe paddle. The figure stands tall at the Earthwood Inn, greeting residents and visitors to the North Shore.

Nancy Lundholm, a bartender and waitress at the Earthwood Inn, says a customer noticed something was missing around lunch time on Tuesday.

"I thought it was horrible. I felt really bad because we all love Pierre, and everybody in town is going to be very upset I'm sure. We're hoping for a speedy recovery," Lundholm said.

The owners of the inn told the Duluth News Tribune they will fix the arm. Pierre's arms weren't part of a recent refurbishment and may have started rotting.
