The Journal Sentinel in Milwaukee is reporting the 7-foot Italian sausage costume, usually seen racing around Miller Park during Brewers games, has been found after going missing for nearly two weeks.
Guido, the sausage with the chef's hat and bow tie, was dropped off a bar in Cedarburg Wednesday night, hours after the missing costume became national news.
Jen Mohney, a bartender at TJ Ryan's, tells the Journal Sentinel two men — one wearing a hoodie pulled over his face — lugged the costume into the bar, dropped it onto a stool and told her "You did not see anything."
"Like I didn't just see two guys plop a sausage on a bar stool," Mohney told the Journal Sentinel.
She says they left quickly, and she called police.
The costume was last seen bar hopping in the area Feb. 16.
The costume was last seen Feb. 16 during a fundraiser for the Milwaukee Curling Club new location in Cedarburg. The 7-foot-long, $3,000 costume was in a backroom at the bar. Someone saw the sausage walk out the door that evening and, according to the Journal Sentinel newspaper, it hit two more bars that night but hadn't been seen after that until Wednesday evening.
