EAGLEHAWK, Australia, Dec. 20 (UPI) — An Australian family said someone stole their snowman Christmas decoration and has been sending them pictures of it “having a great time” at various locales.
Sarah Murley said the decoration, which her family dubbed Francis Frostman, was taken from the veranda at her Eaglehawk home more than a week ago and the family has since received pictures of the small hanging snowman riding a motorbike, racing go-karts, tanning and hanging out at a local bar, the Melbourne Herald Sun reported Monday.
“Saturday night he went out dancing and did a piano duet with someone at the local pub,” Murley said. “It sounds like he’s having a great time, which is all very well, but the kids are missing him.”
Murley said her family has made a video pleading with the captors, who she suspects to be family friends, to have the snowman home for Christmas.
“He’s been having a great time compared to being locked up in a box in our shed for 11 months a year,” Murley said.
