Local authorities are baffled by the disappearance of a Mr. Snowball T. Snowman. His black silk hat and his carrot nose are the only clues. No footprints leading to or away could be located. When the family was questioned their only response was that "Snowball was always a little flakey". "We talked to him the previous day, but he just gave us the cold shoulder".
Authorities do not suspect any foul play, but believe Snowball to have melted away.
