The FBI has taken out an intriguing ad in a plastic surgery journal in a bid to track the leaky breast implants of a mob capo's wife, hoping to nail the crook. "Have you treated this woman?" asks the feds' full-page ad in the journal read by plastic surgeons. Catherine Elizabeth Greig, 59, has breast implants notorious for breaking down. FBI agents are hoping she'll turn up at a doctor's office soon and that will help lead them to Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger, 80.

"I've never seen anything like that in 33-years in practice," said one doc of the ad. Bulger has been indicted on several criminal counts, including charges linked to 19 murders, but he has been on the lam for 15 years, reports ABC News. He's widely believed to be the inspiration of Jack Nicholson's odious character in the film The Departed. (More plastic surgeons stories.)
