HENDERSON, Md.- The Caroline County Sheriff's Office says deputies have located a 200-year-old Mason-Dixon Line marker that stolen from the corner of Mud Mill and Wolf roads in Henderson over the weekend.

According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies found the marker while patrolling the area on Wednesday morning. Police said there is a good possibility that a WBOC news story about the stolen marker, which aired on Tuesday, led someone to dump the marker on the side of the road, just right up the street from where it was stolen.

The Mason-Dixon marker was broken in half and locals believed a large vehicle hauled it away, leaving only the stump. Impressions of the tire marks leading right to the marker remain on the ground.
