FORNEY - You can't make this stuff up.

The famous "Justin Bieber Way" sign in Forney was stolen. It was officially put up on Tuesday and stolen sometime between Wednesday night and Thursday morning.

The mayor of the city is very upset. He said even if it was just teenage vandals, it is not fair to Caroline Gonzalez, Forney’s "Mayor for a Day" winner. The 11-year-old came up with the idea for the sign.

"It may be someone's idea of a joke," said Mayor Darren Rozell. "But we're not going to leave this little girl's summer on a sour note. A Dallas Lite and Barricade has donated its services, creating a new sign."

The mayor said the company will  work on the sign and a new one should be in place by late Thursday afternoon.

The thief could face criminal charges.
