He was last seen in a top hat and old-fashioned black suit with a tail in the back. Around his neck was a pink boa. And in his flat-ironed black hair, pink highlights.
Creepy Jack, as his makers call him, went missing early Monday.
Before his disappearance, Jack stood faithfully for a month in front of the Shear Panache beauty salon in York Township.
He was a multi-tasking mannequin, created both to celebrate Halloween with his unnerving stare and to raise awareness of breast cancer with his pink embellishments.
Jack was also a great way to earn second glances from South Queen Street motorists.
"As the wind blew, it looked like he was waving," Shear Panache owner Jenna Kilby said.
Unless Jack walked off himself - a creepily perfect scenario if this were a short story rather than a news item - someone stole Jack in the wee hours between Sunday and Monday.
Kilby and her beauty team contacted the police, but they've had no luck finding Jack.
The silly name and unusual description aside, Kilby said she's disappointed someone removed the 6-foot-tall figure from her property.
"It's disturbing. I just don't find it funny," Kilby said.
Adding pink to Jack's attire wasn't just an afterthought to grab attention. In the beauty business, Kilby said she's had more than a few clients battle breast cancer.
In fact, she said, the hair loss that cancer patients often experience makes cancer of any kind deeply personal to people who spend their days helping others feel beautiful.
"It's just a nice way to acknowledge, in time, we all come across our own battles," Kilby said.
