HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - An oversized rubber duck that was stolen from a New Hampshire family’s home five years ago has returned, shrouded in a cloud of mystery and global intrigue.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2aGAVbF ) the Troiano family began receiving cryptic postcards and pictures of the duck in locations all over the world soon after its disappearance from their Hampton home.

A Facebook page documenting the globe-trotting of “Gale Ducky” gained a large following that included the Troianos themselves, who were amused by their bath toy’s new adventures and weren’t put off by his abduction.

But on Wednesday morning, Gale Ducky returned with a suitcase full of mementoes from his journey to 20 different countries and numerous cities across the United States.

Jennifer Troiano says she hopes the abductor’s identity remains a mystery.
