About six months ago, Evan Kohler's mom, Heather, lost the family's kitchen mixer.

At the beginning of this year, Heather took to Facebook in a desperate attempt to get it back.

That's when the mixer showed up in a very unexpected place: Instagram.

Evan tweeted the discovery, and her post has since been retweeted more than 14,000 times.

Evan told BuzzFeed News that they noticed the Instagram account @kohlers.kitchen.mixer when it followed their entire family about a week ago.

The person behind the account told BuzzFeed News the mixer came into their possession "by accident."

"The Kohlers left it with me nearly five months ago, and I completely forgot I had it!" they said. "Then Heather posted on Facebook that she was looking for it so I decided to have a little fun."

They did not reveal their identity because they "couldn't take any chances of it getting out," but said they are "close to the family."

They said they do intend on returning the mixer and revealing their identity, but "that will happen when we have our fun and joke around with them a little more."

They said that the blender will continue to go around town, adding that they think it would be fun to take it to some "bigger destinations."

The account now has more than 2,000 followers, including the Kohlers, who regularly comment on the photos.

"My parents speculated it could be my dad's mom, Patti Kohler, who in several cases has been accused of taking the mixer via Twitter," Evan said, but added that she personally thinks it was one of their neighbors.

As of two days ago, the Kohlers' kitchen mixer appears to still be living its best life.
