Saturday is International Sculpture Day, and the FBI needs help finding Dotty Wotty.

The stolen polka dot sculpture of the elephant, created in 1996 by Detroit-based neo-expressionist artist Tyree Guyton, is one of the items in the FBI's National Stolen Art File.

The agency selected several sculptures that have been missing and is hoping for some leads.

Dotty Wotty stands 24 inches wide by 12 inches high.

"Elephants have long memories, and so does the #FBI!" the agency tweeted Saturday afternoon.

Other missing items the FBI is searching for include Mr. Cloud, a sculpture made by Takashi Murakami in 2004′; Femme Fatale, a bronze creation made by Russian artist Erte during the 20th century; and a 9-centimeter lionfish sculpture made from bronze by Yoshi Nori during the Meiji period in Japan.
