An Erie, Illinois family is hoping the public can help find their precious pet–a wallaby named Blu.

Blu went missing on July 17 and has been spotted a few times in Erie and just outside it.

Blu’s owner thinks he got away after digging a hole under their backyard trellis.

The missing macropod is about 20 pounds, 26 inches tall, and has a two foot long tail.  He’s about a year old.

If you spot Blu you are asked to call Alexis Smith at 309-738-7730.
