UPDATE 8/6/19:

Deeno was found and returned to his owners!

Deeno the dinosaur sculpture is expected to be reinstalled, in a concrete base, during a special Food Truck event on Aug. 9 from 11 in the morning until 2 p.m. Deeno was reportedly stolen just a few weeks ago. The celebration for Deeno's return is taking place at the Market at Spring Creek shopping center in southeast Colorado Springs. The center is at S. Circle Drive and Monterey Road.

The $500 reward was paid to the person who found Deeno. It isn't clear if anyone will be facing charges.

ORIGINAL STORY 7/25/19:

A large and green dinosaur is somehow missing from Colorado Springs. The shopping center that Deeno the dinosaur belongs to is now offering a reward to bring him home.

A picture of Deeno is at the top of this article in the missing poster, and he's hard to miss. The green dinosaur with purple spots was taken from the Market at Spring Creek shopping center in southeast Colorado Springs. The center is at S. Circle Drive and Monterey Road.

"He was supposed to be over here near the t-rex," Project Coordinator for Western Centers explained to 11 News. "They wanted to hang out together. They are old friends."

Deeno was one of five sculptures the owner of the property installed. A $500 reward is being offered for Deeno's return. The Brontosaurus was last seen at the shopping center on July 13.
