WAIANAE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

"Stud" the tortoise went missing Tuesday. 

Well, the 100-pound Sulcata Tortoise escaped really, pushing through a fence on the property near Mokuleia where he lives.

It's not the first time he's gotten out. He's actually escaped several times before.

This time, his owners took to Facebook to plea for his return.

If you see the big guy, they said, can you let us know?

There were actually a few sightings before the Stud was reunited with his owners.

One of those sightings happened on the beach on Crozier Drive.

Nico Lopez captured photos of Stud playing in the water and lounging on the sand.

On Thursday, Stud had made it to a farm in Waialua — and at that point, he was ready to go home.
