One Zippy Returned, One Still Missing

The University of Akron has some reason to celebrate Monday as one of the two missing "Zippy" costumes has been returned safely. 

Still no word, though, on the status of the second costume. 

According to the University, the one costume was returned by a student who is part of the Zippy program, and thought he'd returned it after an event; he did not. As of Monday morning, that costume was returned unharmed. 

The University says they're still looking into the missing mascot. 

The following is the statement from University of Akron's Dan Minnich: 

"An individual in the Zippy Program who originally believed he did not have one of the costumes realized yesterday he had forgotten to return a costume after performing at an event. That costume is in the process of being returned. One Zippy costume remains missing."
