Where are the gnomes coming from?

Little gnome statues have been quietly popping up around Durham and it's got tongues wagging.

They have been making their way to strange places like the overpass on Blackwell Street and Morehead Avenue.

Driving north on I-85, we spotted one hanging out on another overpass and a trio of gnomes on another.

"I noticed it kind of laying down going near the mall and I thought, how did someone drive up under there and get this thing up there?" said Cynthia Bizzell of Durham.

No one knows how the gnomes got there - but the blogosphere is buzzing with sightings. There's even a website dedicated to the little guys.
