A bookstore in Mesa says their valuable first edition copy of the Book of Mormon was stolen.

Hundreds of missionaries travel to the store, Rare and Out of Print Books and Art, to see the book. It was printed in 1830.

The store's owner said the last time she saw the book was on Friday night.  She says the book is very popular with the Mesa, Arizona community.

So far, police have no suspects or leads.

The store's owner said the book is valued at $100,000 and is uninsured.
