A family in China posted flyers around their home after their beloved self-propelled Roomba vacuum went missing. On Oct. 3 it was reported that the vac went missing, perhaps right out an open door in the family's home. Now, they are frantically looking for their beloved chargeable house cleaner.
The family put up flyers with a photo of their missing vac along with some details about its characteristics (not unlike a missing pet flyer). If anyone comes across a lonely-looking vacuum that doesn't appear to be in the right place, it could be this particular missing Roomba.
This certainly isn't the first time that someone's Roomba has gone missing. If a door is left open, the Roomba can and will mosey on outside to continue cleaning... until it's battery runs out. Unfortunately these devices aren't smart enough to find the way back home.
If you find the vacuum, the family hopes that you will return it to them. They miss it -- and they need it to clean their floors.
