ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOX) –  Missing in St. Peters…a giant Rhino.

Police there say it looks like somebody came along and stole the rhino, which is actually a balloon measuring 12 feet tall and 25 feet long used to advertise a Michael’s Flooring Outlets along Interstate 70.

It disappeared sometime late Friday night.

Brian Amon is the company’s General Manager and he tells KMOX the rhino’s worth an estimated $3,500, and the store had leased it for two weeks for the cost of $800. Amon fears the rhino’s owners will want $3,500 if it’s not returned.

Amon says beer cans and a cigarette butt has been collected from the scene.
