China Floods Cause Giant Yellow Rubber Duck to Disappear
A giant rubber duck installed on China's Nanming River has disappeared. The duck, a sculpture by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, was widely acclaimed and warmly received when it arrived in China, but disappeared swiftly from the waters as the river rose. No one appears to have any indication of where the duck landed.
"The duck flopped over and was flushed away really quickly by the torrent. It disappeared right in front of me in a few seconds," said Yan Jianxin, who helped bring the duck to China as an art exhibition. The duck had arrived in China on July 4, and weighed around one ton, along with, Yan explained, a more than 10-ton "floating metal platform" affixed to the bottom of the river.

I resisted the urge to put this under the "Missing" section.

Rubber Ducky, where are you? So many youngsters will be so upset about this! And some Grandmoms, too, including me.
