The search is on for music legend Willie Nelson's stolen armadillo.

According to USA Today, shortly after Nelson's recent concert ended at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y., someone sneaked onto stage and made off with the band's unofficial mascot: A stuffed armadillo named Ol' Dillo.

Surveillance video shows a woman casually walking onto the stage, grabbing Ol' Dillo and then walking off, even talking to a security guard on her way out.

Nelson camp took to the singer's Facebook page to ask fans to help in finding the thief.

Ol' Dillo belongs to one of Nelson's sound engineers, travels with the band and even sits onstage during concerts.
