Somewhere in the Lansing area, Leonardo DiCaprio is being held against his will. And police would like to know where.
The famous actor and film producer – or rather, a life-size likeness – was kidnapped in a daring, daylight caper at the Michigan State University Student Union on Monday.
Witnesses told police they were in a break area shortly after 5 p.m. when a white male suspect in a bright green hoodie slipped in and grabbed the hapless cutout of DiCaprio from where it resided behind a glass door, MSU police said.
The suspect was chased out of the building, where he jumped into a four-door, burgundy Lincoln containing several subjects, MSU police Capt. Doug Monette said. As the vehicle departed, it rolled over a bystander's foot but didn't cause any injuries.
Apparently, the cardboard version of the star of "Titanic" and "The Revenant" hasn't been seen or heard from since. Police were told it's worth about $400.
The suspect was described as 5-foot-8 to 6-foot-2, with curly hair and glasses.
Anyone with information about the kidnapping is asked to call Detective Chad Davis at 517-355-2226.
