ROANOKE, Va. (WTVR) -- Aliens really do exist in one Virginia town -- and the family that owns them wants them back.

Police say someone took a pair of green alien decorations from the yard of a home in Roanoke.

But the green, big-eyed creatures serve as more than just lawn ornaments for the family that lives at the home.

WDBJ reports that the couple that bought the aliens has three special needs teenagers who require constant care, which has resulted in them not having many friends.

As a result, the family says they use the lawn ornaments as a way to connect with others and teach their kids about communication skills.
