A Rockton woman is relieved after her abducted alien statue has returned home.

After Janet Herbert shared on Facebook the story of her concrete green alien and what had happened, it went viral.

Herbert said "I can't imagine anyone could love him more than I do" when referring to the nearly three-foot-tall alien.

Locally, WIFR news picked up the story and probed the whereabouts of the little green man.

That news piece may have spurred the return of the alien to Herbert. Yesterday she shared on that same Facebook post "he was returned to me. Thanks to whoever and however it happened."

Aliens, man. They just come and go as they please.
