MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Klement's on Wednesday evening, April 3rd hosted a "Welcome Home" party for Guido -- the Italian Racing Sausage that went missing back in February.

Guido was located inside T.J. Ryan's Bar in Cedarburg after it was reportedly taken from the Milwaukee Curling Club's Cedarburg location.

"We have talked to people that actually saw him leave that facility," Cedarburg Police Captain Glen Lindberg said.

Later that night, "Guido" stopped by a couple Cedarburg bars. He was eventually discovered at T.J. Ryan's.

"He was kinda—started dancing with some of the women patrons," owner Tim Ryan said.

Before the Italian sausage made like ground beef.

"He must've hit a patch of ice or snow out there, being all big and tall as he is. He wiped out. He was laying out there for awhile," Ryan said.

"Guido" remained on the run until  two unidentified people left the link back at the bar.

"A couple people came in with, you know, hoodies on, and dropped it off and said, ‘You didn’t see anything, and you know, they scattered off," Ryan said.

With the sausage safely back in custody, the crew at Klement shared a comment: "Little rough, little raw, so we need to take him in and get him clean, but we’re gonna have him rest for a while and go from there," Rebecca Quella with Klement said.

Wednesday's evening's party was meant as a thank you for community and media support leading to Guido's return. The party took place in the Yount/Uecker parking lot at Miller Park -- and attendees received a Klement's Italian Sausage, two drink tickets and a ticket to the Brewers vs. Rockies game Wednesday night.
