We have got a missing persons report.
Looie, the mascot for the Chattanooga Lookouts, is currently missing. Well, maybe not Looie, but at least the costume for the beloved mascot is missing. It was stolen on March 31, according to a tweet from the Chattanooga Police Department.

Fairly recognizable, right? Hopefully they’ll be able to find the missing costume soon.
The Lookouts’ minor league season is set to get underway on May 4, which is a little over a month away. It can’t be a good omen to have the mascot stolen. Maybe bringing a little attention to the matter will have a lot more people on the lookout.
Someone on Twitter speculated that it was Loouise, Looie’s female counterpart, behind the disappearance.
It was Loouise and we all know it!

At least this tweet provides a clearer picture of Looie. It’s 2021. How could CPD not get a better resolution photo of the mascot than that? It feels like I’m back in 2007.
Anyways, if you have any tips on his whereabouts, be sure to call (423) 698-2525.
