A ST ALBANS mum is appealing for help to find her daughter’s beloved toy giraffe, after it went missing on Monday afternoon.

Cat Strange was walking with her daughter Bella, aged two, when the toy disappeared somewhere between The Quadrant and Sandfield Road.

Cat said: “We walked down Marshalswick Lane, along Sandpit Lane, then onto Woodstock Road north and Brampton Road, into Sandfield Road where we live. It was between 1pm and 2pm.”

The pair went straight back out to look for it but couldn’t track the toy down. They have now put up a number of posters in a bid to track down the lost toy and reunite it with the tot.

The toy giraffe is from Marks & Spencer, although they do not make it any more. Bella’s has holes in his feet and a very floppy neck where it has been held every day for more than two years.

Cat continued: “She has had this giraffe since birth and has grown very attached, it goes with her everywhere.Only last week it went with her to London to watch an opera rehearsal and to Bedford to visit her daddy at work, but as chance has it, we lost it near to our own doorstep!”

Anyone who finds the giraffe can contact Cat on 01727 836589.
