Police in Hartford, Connecticut, said they hope the public can help find the missing Shrek figurine.
The 200-pound idol went missing from a house last week. It is not clear whether the police have got any leads.
“If you have any information on his current whereabouts, please reach out to our department or return him in the same condition you found him. The dragon idol he lives with is frustrated and lonely,” the department said.
Shrek is an ogre character who first appeared in the 2001 film “Shrek”. Mike Myers has voiced Shrek in several films.
It has become one of a handful of fictional characters given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
