    In this Jan. 12, 2012, file photo, Bob Dylan performs in Los Angeles. Dylan was named the winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature on Oct. 13, 2016, but the academy is unable to find him and present his prize.

    The Nobel Academy can't seem to find Bob Dylan after he won the prize for literature, NBC News reported.

    The academy's permanent secretary, Sara Danius, said she had emailed and called Dylan's "closest collaborator" to ensure he gets his hefty award of $927,740, according to a translation published in The Guardian.

    So far, she said, she's received "very friendly replies," according to The Guardian — but Dylan is still nowhere to be found.

    This leaves the academy in the odd position of giving up on tracking down their laureate.
