The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) is asking for the public’s help in reuniting a little lost penguin with its owner.

An adorable stuffed penguin was found on the shoulder of southbound Interstate 5 and 41st Street in Everett on Tuesday.

Little boy and favorite toy reunited thanks to WSDOT’s social media efforts

WSDOT tweeted out a photo of the lost toy hoping to reunite it with whoever might be looking for it.

Last year, a pea-green triceratops was lost off Interstate 90, and thanks to social media it was able to find it’s way home in time for nap time.
