FORT WAYNE, Ind. – A child advocacy agency is hoping to get all its ducks in a row after more than 1,000 plastic entrants in a charity duck race floated to freedom in northeast Indiana.

Stop Child Abuse & Neglect says 17,000 plastic ducks were dropped into the St. Joseph River in Fort Wayne during the June 19 fundraiser but that only 15,000 were retrieved that day.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Boen says about 1,000 of the rogue ducks have since been recovered, and that some of the others have been spotted as far away as Ohio.

The group says it is working with the Fort Wayne Water Department to catch the remaining ducks and that it wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize the beauty of the river.
