Authorities have said they have few leads in the disappearance of the famous Gecko spokeslizard for the GEICO insurance company, whose whereabouts have been unknown since Thursday. In a bid to try to enlist public help in tracking down the diminutive pitch-reptile, police have revealed one piece of information they believe to be significant, although they have not discussed what that significance may be.
"We found a laptop computer with this page from The Washington Post on the screen," a police spokesman said. "Other evidence suggests the resident exited the dwelling in an extreme hurry; there were several insects prepared for a meal left on the table and a DVD of the 2007 sitcom Cavemen was still in the player."
In an apparently unrelated item, the SpaceX commercial spaceflight company refused to confirm or deny that its Falcon 9 spacecraft is also missing.
