HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Officials with Meadow Gold Dairies are heart-broken over the theft of their beloved mascot of more than six decades, Lani Moo. They're asking for the public's help in finding her.

Lani Moo -- who visits schools, fairs and other events to promote healthy living -- was stolen from an SUV that was parked outside the company's headquarters off Keeaumoku Street Wednesday night. Surveillance cameras captured a man smashing the back window of the vehicle and taking the luggage bag that contained the costume.

The video is being turned over to police.

"For over 60 years, Lani Moo is truly an ambassador in the community for good health and wellness, and we're really bummed that her costume is gone," Wendy Fujimoto, Meadow Gold Dairies, said.

Company officials are concerned about someone donning the costume near children and acting inappropriately.

"Surely, we prefer having our Lani Moo at our events represented in the light that we'd like her to be," Fujimoto said. "So out of context, that's not our desired choice."

Lani Moo was in a black and blue Samsonite luggage bag with wheels on it. If you have any information, call police.
