Parents issue Mater Alert for missing diecast toy truck

VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (KNN) – Parents have issued a Mater Alert for a missing Terre Haute toy.

Taco the derby truck was last seen on Monday night possibly during three-year-old Alex Essex’s bathtime.

The truck is a toy from the destruction derby scene of the Pixar movie Cars 3.

Taco is described as about two-inches long weighing not much. He appears to have a smashed truck bed. He’s a diecast car toy. KNN has attached a photo of a similar toy.

Parents say Taco may have been thrown into a toilet. On Monday, Alex said he threw a toy in the ‘potty’ but parents have not been able to locate anything.

On Tuesday morning, after being asked if he threw Taco in the toilet, Alex said he did. Parents say they mistakenly put the idea of Taco in the potty in his head first.

Taco is believed to be in extreme danger and may be in need of medical attention.

If you have any information on Taco’s location, please comment on this post.
