Someone has placed a cross on the site of a Mojave Desert war memorial where a controversial metal cross was stolen earlier this month.

Linda Slater of the Mojave National Preserve says a maintenance worker spotted the cross Thursday on Sunrise Rock.

There's no immediate word on whether it's the same cross that vanished or whether the park will remove it.

A 7-foot cross made of metal pipe was located on the site 200 miles northeast of Los Angeles until someone stole it.

A lawsuit had challenged the religious object because it was on public land. The U.S. Supreme Court refused to order it removed while the case is being decided.
