A sign made to rename a US street after pop heartthrob Justin Bieber has been stolen.

The temporary sign for Justin Bieber Way went up in Forney, Texas on Tuesday, at the request of "mayor for the day", 11-year-old Caroline Gonzalez.

The Dallas Morning News reports that by Thursday morning it was missing.

The street renaming was one of Caroline's first major acts in office. The youngster had become honorary mayor by raising money for orphans.

Caroline's father, Tony Gonzalez said that after she learned of the theft, he had "never seen her so mad".

City officials have made a new sign and are hoping it lasts at least until Monday, the first day of school.
