Missing racing sausage costume found

CEDARBURG, Wis. (AP) -- The case of the missing sausage is closed.

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."

She says they left quickly, and she called police.

The costume was last seen bar hopping in the area Feb. 16.

STORY FROM 2/27/13
CEDARBURG, Wis. (AP) -- One of the base-running sausages, a familiar sight at Milwaukee Brewers games, is missing.

Someone wearing the Klement's Racing Italian Sausage costume recently posed with bar patrons in Cedarburg, Wis. The 7-foot-long, $3,000 costume was in a backroom at the Milwaukee Curling Club during a Feb. 16 fundraiser. Someone saw the sausage walk out the door that evening and it hasn't been seen since.

The costume is owned by Milwaukee-based sausage company Klement's. The Racing Sausages, including the Bratwurst, the Polish Sausage, the Hot Dog and the Chorizo, are a popular sight running bases at Brewers home games. The costumes are available for rent.

Cedarburg police Detective Jeff Vahsholtz tells the Journal Sentinel (http://bit.ly/13nWgM4) that police are interviewing bar patrons and looking for the costume.
