ATLANTA - It's hard to spell Georgia Tech without a "T", but right now there's one missing from the iconic campus tower.

School officials confirmed to Channel 2 Action News on Tuesday afternoon that someone stole a large "T" from the top of Tech Tower.

A school spokesman said Tuesday afternoon administrators were aware the letter is missing.

The school tweeted, "Defacing campus property isn't a tradition we're proud of."

By Tuesday evening the "T" had been recovered and a student apprehended.

Formally known as the Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Administration Building, the building rises above the center of campus.

The Georgia Tech police department is handling the investigation of the lost letter and will determine what charges may be filed.

The incident has been handed over to the Office of Student Integrity.
