Sixteen years after it was stolen from a local school, the hunt is continuing for a missing sketch.

The sketch, which went missing at St George’s School in Harpenden, was taken from owner Annie Lightfoot, 32, while she was taking her GCSE Art.

She said: “My teacher said that they loved the drawing so much that she wanted to make an invitation out of it and that’s the last I saw of it.

“When I went back to collect the sketch after the summer, they told me it wasn’t there. I just thought it seemed so weird, as it had been most popular among the teachers.”

Annie only has the small A7 size invitation left as a reminder of her picture, which was originally A1 in size.

Annie, who runs an interior design business, added: “It would be nice to get it back or to know who has got it. Even if the person who has it really wants it, they can have it but ultimately I want it back.”

The picture was an interpretation of Escher’s Hand with Reflecting Sphere. Anyone with information should contact Annie via all-interiors@live.co.uk
