Now you see them, now you don’t. Sir Elton John’s famous heart-shaped sunglasses have been stolen from a museum exhibit in Memphis, Tennessee.

The iconic shades the Rocket Man hitmaker donned regularly during the 1970s have been on display in a locked case at the Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum for the past year, but the priceless piece of rock memorabilia went missing this week.

Museum managers reported the theft to cops on Tuesday night and authorities are now on the hunt for the culprit.

According to reports, security cameras failed to capture the theft on film.
