In 2022, Wellington NZ commissioned the creation of 20 bronze pigeons statues to celebrate the city's business community.

But now, two of the statues have disappeared, leaving some Wellingtonians all aflutter. 

The pigeons' creator, Wellington artist Jonathan Campbell, joins Emile Donovan to investigate.
