GUIYANG, China (WAVY) – A hunt for a giant, yellow duck is underway in China.

You may remember, another version of the 40-foot-tall “Rubber Duck” was recently in Hampton Roads, floating in the Hague back in May.

Now, Want China Times reports Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s duck was swept away Wednesday on a swollen river. According to reports, Rubber Duck was washed away by floodwaters after days of heavy rainfall.

An organizer is now offering a reward online to anyone who can find the missing attraction. If it can’t be found, Want China Times reports another duck will be brought in to take its place.
