They do exist, but where to find them? Here are some, the Sixteen Arhats, that buddhanet displays: http://www.buddhanet.net/e-learning/history/lohans.htm

Maybe this SF temple could help you find statues? Look in the lower right for images of the Sixteen: http://www.zhaxizhuoma.net/NEWS/2006-FuHuiSi.html
