EDMONTON -- City cops still need help in finding a missing mascot that was stolen from McNally High School.

And police say the mascot -- a tiger costume -- is worth $5,000.

"Roary" the mascot was declared missing back in November after he made an appearance at a Halloween party.

Const. Brandon Shippelt said cops put posters around the school asking students to come forward with information about Roary's whereabouts with little success.

A @WheresRoary_ account was set up on Twitter last month that shows the furry mascot in various locations around the city.

And after QMI Agency reported the story Saturday, the account posted an image of the article on Twitter.

The account said "this is going on my fridge for sure."
