CINCINNATI, May 20 (UPI) -- A missing farm mascot in New Richmond, Ohio, has sent police on a fruitless search for a 7-foot, 350-pound buffalo made entirely of fiberglass.

Despite the massive size of the Vista Grand Ranch's mascot, named Big Bad Bob, authorities have been unable to locate it since it was stolen last week, the Cincinnati Enquirer said Sunday.

New Richmond Police Sgt. Leslie Smith said that while many tips have been offered by residents since the mascot disappeared Thursday, the fiberglass buffalo has remained elusive.

"This thing is the size of a small car," Smith said. "People have been coming up to police officers saying 'Look here' or 'Look here.' We've looked all over the place; we can't find it."

Police told the Enquirer that Big Bad Bob was taken while the mascot sat in the parking lot of a grocery store.
