Is This Your Unicorn? Call the Coast Guard ASAP

The Coast Guard is seeking the public's help identifying the owner of a white unicorn float found off of Olowalu Beach, Maui, July 21, 2018. Anyone with information that may help identify the owner of the unicorn float is asked to contact Sector Honolulu at 808-842-2600. (U.S. Coast Guard courtesy photo/Released)

If you’re missing a unicorn floatie in Honolulu, the Coast Guard is looking for you. Yes, you. Come get your floatie.

In what is most definitely just a safety precaution to make sure the adrift unicorn didn’t belong to an adrift person, the Coast Guard Saturday published a press release hoping that someone would claim what they described as a “white unicorn float.”

They also deployed a helicopter crew and response boat just in case the owner of the float was still out there.

Which is great. But because this problem involves a white unicorn floatie, it’s also funny.

There were no reports of missing persons, they said. But still, they looked.

Because, really, why would anyone let such a glorious piece of beach goodness escape their ownership on purpose?

“The Coast Guard requests anyone with information regarding the float to contact the Sector Honolulu Command Center at 808-842-2600.”
