SARASOTA, Fla., Feb. 1 (UPI) -- The giant Lego man that washed up on a Florida beach has been released by police after going 90 days without an official claimant.

Denise Kowal, chair of the Sarasota Chalk Festival, said Sarasota Police turned the 8-foot-tall Lego man statue, named "Ego Lennard," over to her Thursday after police waited 90 days to see if anyone would claim the object, WZVN-TV, Fort Myers, Fla., reported Wednesday.

Kowal said she is hoping the mysterious statue, which washed up on a beach last year, will remain in Sarasota.
