Cute, wild and crazy

Santa Claus is lost! He wouldn't run away right before Christmas! As the elves enlist the help of a private investigator who is down on his luck right now, they go through all kinds of things to find Santa and bring him back.

Very cute and punny short story. The whole time I'm reading, i keep thinking it sounds like Guy Noir, sure enough, the author is a writer for PHC. Couple of groans, but overall just good fun.
