FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Police are hoping social media — and a little humor — will help them find a life-size Big Bird figure that was stolen from a business in Fort Collins.

The police department took to Twitter and Facebook on Wednesday, asking “Can you tell us how to get (how to get) to the suspect’s street?”

The 6-foot-tall figure was taken from a business in downtown over Thanksgiving weekend, and investigators said in the social media posts that “Fowl play is suspected.”

The posts also said that Sesame Street characters Bert and Ernie are waiting back at the business and hope to be reunited with their friend soon.

Police added: “Needless to say, (the theft) really ruffled some feathers.”
