It depends on your font.  In Cambria Math, the character is U+22EE.
That said, I don't believe that any version of FM prior to 8 supports

Probably the easiest (unless you are using it a lot!) method would be to
1. create an inline anchored frame, 
2. insert a standard ellipsis (ALT+0133) as a graphic character, and
3. rotate the character.

Not the most elegant, but functional.
