ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The Anchorage owners of an inflatable games business are hoping to get one of their rentals back. A big one.

Michelle Appel tells the Anchorage Daily News (http://bit.ly/1fWkfEs) that a customer nearly two years ago rented a king-size bounce house from her business, For Fun Alaska, but never returned the $4,000 item.

The device is called the Big Big Bouncer. It would be hard to miss with its scheme of primary colors. Plus, it's 20 feet across and about 15 feet tall.

Appel says a woman paid $400 to rent the bounce house for a birthday party and was not seen again. Appel and her husband tracked the woman to her home, but she had moved.

Appel says the Big Big Bouncer is the only theft from the business since it was started by her mother in 1991.
