Under the laws of all states in this country, a person who is not a surveyor who deliberately removes a boundary marker could be subject to criminal charges.

In your situation, I suggest that you consult with a real estate lawyer concerning sending a demand letter to your neighbors about the need to reinstate the boundary marker at its true location at their cost. Depending upon their response, you act accordingly based upon the advice of your attorney.
