N.J. Police on the Trail of Their Missing (Inflatable) Peter Cottontail

March 29, 2024
A blow-up bunny disappeared from outside the Washington Police Township Department's headquarters, and the agency launched a search, complete with a tongue-in-cheek missing person report.

Cops in Gloucester County are searching for Peter Cottontail after their department’s inflatable Easter bunny mysteriously vanished.

The jolly blow-up bunny was last seen Sunday inside its inflatable Easter egg home outside the Washington Township Police Department’s headquarters.

Authorities are unsure whether or not the 8-foot decoration was stolen. It went missing after a windy rain storm, so it could have blown away, officials said Thursday.

Police searched the area and found no trace of the bunny and its egg, according to officials.

On Facebook, the department posted a tongue-in-cheek missing person report created for Peter Cottontail.

He is 8-feet tall, 10 pounds and 1 year old with blue eyes and white hair, according to the report.

As of Friday, the Easter bunny’s location remains unknown, cops said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Washington Township Police Department at (856) 256-1212.
