Anyone reporting a yellow submarine while partying on Sarasota Bay this Labor Day weekend will not automatically be cited for DUI. Instead, the finder might get a check for $500.
Baffled scientists at Mote Marine Laboratory have lost a bright yellow, 6-foot-long, $100,000 submersible robot with wings somewhere in the Gulf waters off Venice. Even worse, its name is Waldo. And yes -- not even the communications satellites it speaks to know where Waldo is.
If you see this yellow submarine immediately contact:Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium1600 Ken Thompson ParkwaySarasota, FL 34236941-388-4441http://www.mote.org/
