PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

A $1,000 reward is being offered for the return of a historic picture that disappeared during the annual Kells Irish Festival last weekend.

The picture of Robert and John Kennedy had hung on the wall inside Kells restaurant and bar for more than 20 years. Workers noticed it was gone on Sunday.

"The photo was taken in the 1960s when John Kennedy was president and Robert Kennedy was U.S. attorney general. This photograph was a piece of American history that we love and want back," said Lucille McAleese, co-owner of Kells.

The owners are reviewing surveillance video and said they will file a police report on Wednesday.

Anyone with information is asked to call Kells at 503-227-4057 or email office@kellsirish.com.
