NEW YORK (CNN) -- A missing fuel tanker, initially thought to be stolen for parts, is causing concern among federal law enforcement officials, who are appealing to the public for help.

The 44-foot gasoline tanker was stolen in April from a parking lot in Pennsauken, New Jersey.

The FBI's Philadelphia division has released a photograph of a chrome-plated tanker similar to the one taken from TK Transport Terminal over the Easter weekend of April 10-11.

"We're asking the public to be on the lookout for a fuel tanker in a location inconsistent with where you'd typically see an oil or gasoline delivery," FBI spokeswoman Jerri Williams said.

Williams said investigators initially believed the tanker was stolen for parts or to dump toxic waste illegally.

"If that were the case, we would have found the carcass" of the tanker, she said.

"We're very concerned. It's been almost seven months, and we still haven't found it," she said.
