Who's holding hostage Hip Hop the Hippo, the mascot of a Melbourne childcare centre?

More than one person is believed to be behind the theft of the concrete and plaster hippo that went missing some time last week from the Hippity Hop Childcare in Pakenham.

"The families of the centre are just shocked and absolutely appalled this could happen to us, and especially a childcare centre and innocent children," centre director Jess McAleer said on Thursday.
