DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Volunteers planned to meet at a Des Moines park this weekend to search for a missing South American orange iguana.
The 16-year-old, 4-foot iguana named "Brahm" is the pet of a Seattle woman and her boyfriend who were in town earlier this month for the Renaissance Faire. The Des Moines Register reports the large lizard somehow made his escape into Sleepy Hollow Sports Park and hasn't been found.
When Des Moines resident Alex Colby saw Sydney Feldspar's plea on Facebook for help finding the beloved pet, she organized a search party that meets this Saturday afternoon in the park.
Colby says the effort even has a lead: Someone reported finding iguana tracks in the park.
The couple is offering a $300 reward for the safe return of Brahm.
