(Harrisburg) -- Several candidates in the Harrisburg mayor's race are reporting missing campaign signs.

Three candidates are challenging Mayor Linda Thompson in the May 21 Democratic primary.

One of them, Dan Miller, says every single one of his signs on one heavily traveled street were gone by late Sunday evening.

A spokeswoman for another candidate, Eric Papenfuse, says his signs have been going missing as well, some of them removed with wire cutters.

A third challenger, Lewis Butts, says he's holding off until closer to the election before putting out his campaign signs.

Attempts by to reach Thompson were unsuccessful.
