KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City theater company is offering a $500 reward for the return of its replica of the iconic flying car in the 1968 movie "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang."

But the company's CEO says the car is priceless to the business.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/2sRgEWj ) that employees of A to Z Theatrical Supply and Service reported the Thursday morning theft.

CEO James Hunter says the car "has hundreds of hours of highly skilled artisans involved in creating this very unique piece."

The replica was built by hand in 2015 and is part of a set design package popular with high school and community theater groups nationwide.

The car was stored in a locked trailer parked near the company's building. Surveillance video captured the trailer being driven away.
