From a Facebook fan group, to the voices of those who remember a mall's tall Christmas icon, an outcry for the return of a popular snowman is heard.
A Facebook group formed just two days ago, Bring Archie Back to Chapel Hill Mall, has close to 2,000 members.
David Giffels, a former reporter with the Akron Beacon Journal, joined the 1590 WAKR Ray Horner Morning Show Tuesday. He wrote the original news stories on the end of Archie's run at the shopping mall in Akron.
Giffels said after new management took over the mall in 2004, changes were made to the holiday displays.
"The new owners, I guess, just didn't sort of understand us," he said. "To them it was this sort of in a state of disrepair thing that was in the way of whatever they wanted to do in the mall."
Archie's fate is still unknown.
Giffels' out reach to find Archie a new home didn't take off, as one of the places he tried was the Akron Zoo.
"I never really knew, once they didn't get any takers, if they just dumped him or, if maybe he is sitting in a back room at Chapel Hill," he said.
1590 WAKR Host Ray Horner fielded calls from those who have fond memories of Archie.
"We're sorry to see it go," one listener said.
One man mentioned it was a holiday tradition to visit Archie with his family.
"We don't know what happened to him, but we'd like to see him back," he said.
Mary Lou Fogle was the only female voice of Archie the snowman. When she retired, she started the job that she kept for 10 years.
"It sort of evolved into asking the children a few things about themselves," she said. "It was just something I really enjoyed doing."
