Attention “Despicable Me 2” fans: The Minions are missing!

Look for them across the NBCUniversal family of websites and win prizes.

Starting today, June 10, through June 30, fans of “Despicable Me 2″ can win the most despicable of prizes by discovering the missing Minions.

Here are the details:

Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team have created an all-new comedy adventure featuring the return of super-villain Gru (Steve Carell), his adorable girls, the unpredictably hilarious Minions… and a host of new and outrageously funny characters. “Despicable Me 2″ will be released on July 3, 2013.

As fans of the original “Despicable Me” know, Gru’s loyal yellow, gibberish-speaking Minions love causing mischief and mayhem almost as much as they love bananas. They are easily distracted and can be unpredictable, curious and subversively sweet. They are extremely competitive with each other. This can lead to sudden slap fights, but if someone from the outside tries to harm them or Gru’s family, they become fiercely protective. Now, someone or something has been making them vanish…
