New Forest Lost Stolen Found page is for you to post about your lost pet. Since I set up this page we've had some good results and also some sad outcomes. I've decided to open the page up to other types of loss as well as pets - no one wants to visit the New Forest and lose something so hopefully we can all help retrieve it.
It's just a way of quickly getting your details out there to try to help.

May 10 - 13 2017 - have you found a wedding ring? Update 1st June - success! Ring found.
A 22ct yellow gold plain narrow hallmarked wedding ring was lost between 10th and 13th May.
"During a family visit to the New Forest, staying at the Moorhill House Hotel, Burley, my aunt discovered she had lost the ring. Her mother's wedding ring, she has worn it for over fifty years; my aunt is now 89 and obviously this has caused some distress.
I appreciate the probability of finding the ring is very slim, but felt it worth an email just in case it had been handed in. This is also particularly poignant as my grandparents were married in Sway church and the family lived in Sway, Burley and Lymington. Many thanks Kind regards Christine Chubb
Please Contact me if you can help re unite this very special ring to its owner or if you have any info.

Have you seen a blue and white handbag on your walks around the Bolderwood area?
There are 2 issues for you to be aware of in this unfortunate post. Obviously thieves are working in some of our New Forest car parks. They probably are parked up and see you place your valuables in your boot before going off for a walk. This is worrying and so please take extra care.
I'd also like to ask you to please look out for discarded items from this recent theft. The owner has done everything to safeguard her stolen items (bank cards, phone SIM etc) but would like to have them returned as they hold sentimental value.
Can you help?
"I just found your page and the lost and found section and wondered if you would be so kind as to share this link to my handbag and contents that were stolen from Bolderwood on 27/2/17? Thanks! https://www.facebook.com/LostBox/posts/1361339643925888"
Please Contact me and I'll pass your info on.

Help! Have you seen this lovely tortoise?
We have lost a beloved family pet tortoise who has lived with us for more than 40 years. She layed her eggs at the end of July and went missing on the same day. We were hoping that she had buried herself in the garden for a rest, but has not reappeared. If she managed to get out of garden, we are situated near The Bold Forester Pub, Marchwood. Any local dog walkers/riders etc please keep a look out for her - she could quite easily have walked to the Longdown area. She is a large tortoise and has telephone number painted on her shell. Anyone on Facebook/twitter please share. Her name is Marmalade! Please ring with any info 07469196287.
Update: this lovely old chap has been found!!! Good news eh?Urgent Thursday 01 Sept 2016

Lost cat in Hythe last seen a month ago - can you help find Tinni?
2 years ago my own cat befriended a stray similar to himself. The stray cat was extremely thin and was so hungry and my cat used to leave food for the stray I named Tinni-tinribs, due to it being so skinny. It's legs were like sticks. It gradually put on weight, so we just named it Tinni who visited every day and kept company with my cat in the garden or went hunting together in the woods.
A month ago Tinni never returned. I have put up posters with no response. I have asked vets and Cat and Kitten rescue with no response yet. I wonder if anyone has seen this pretty black and white cat with long white socks on hind legs and a white stripe down the nose and beautiful slightly hooded large amber eyes. My cat really misses his pall and I do too.
If you have any news please call 07854142256.

Monday 16th May 2016 Have you lost a small brown terrier near Bramble Hill?
I've just had this information in and want to post it to you.
"Driving near Bramble Hill Hotel (Bramshaw) this morning (10.15am) we came across a small brown terrier with a red collar or coat (tartan?). I'm not very good on dog breeds but possibly a border terrier. It looked lost as it was running along the road with no-one with it and was looking at going in different directions. Before we could call it over we think it headed in a northerly direction into the forest by the cottages a couple of hundred yards along the road north of the hotel."
Thursday 12th May 2016 - Have you seen Champion the cat in the New Milton area?
Update: Tuesday 24 May - Champion has turned up safe and sound. He was just a few miles away and apart from being a bit skinny is happy and well to be home.
Our much loved family cat, Champion has been missing since May 4th from Osborne Rd, New Milton.
Please check your garages/sheds and outhouses. He is microchipped but new to the area so may have lost his way.
Please call with any information 01425 614688 or 07825661001
Saturday 30 April - an unusual lost request this time not about a pet.
Quote from Dawn
"I wondered if you could post this on your lost and found site - I lost a white gold cartier love bangle, whilst cycling between Black Knowl and Brokenhurst on the Brokenhurst to Rhinefield tall trees cycle route, on Saturday 30th April. The bangle is held together with screws, so it would be in 2 pieces, even if the whole bangle isn't found I would be grateful to get back any part of the bangle as it holds so much sentiment to me, as it was a gift from my husband."
Can you help please? I don't post phone numbers on my web so if you can help please Contact me and I'll pass your info on to Dawn.
Update - 8 January - this little dog was found New Years Day 2 streets away from her home. She'd walked 15 miles home!

"My Jack Russell has got lost Hatch Pond Beaulieu she's black and white last seen 17.00 hrs."
An update from this frantic owner has been that a dog similar to this has been seen near Kings Hat Car Park. There no confirmation that it's the same dog sadly. This lost Jack Russell is black/white with brown face markings and wears a red collar with white bones on it in leather.
Have you seen her? Please contact through here or Twitter @NewForestpiglet or @NewForestLife1
Friday 13 November
In the early hours of the morning at West Tytherley on the Hants/Wilts border a Cob gelding and mare were seen running down North Lane West Tytherley. They were later found in a sheep field. Their gate padlock and chain had been cut and it looked like the attempt to steal them had been foiled judging by the hoof prints left behind. A motorbike was also stolen nearby. if you have any information please call Hampshire Police on 101 quoting ref 44150394446.
Fantastic news re Biggles - he has been found by his owners!
Biggles went missing on Saturday 31st October, was spotted in a paddock in Burley on Tuesday but he ran off towards the A31.
Earlier this morning (Thursday 5th November) he was spotted back in the paddock in Burley, probably looking very unlike he does in this photo! Wet, muddy and exhausted poor lad.
He's back home safe and sound now so good news all round. Thank you for everyone who has helped by Twittering and FB'ing his journey.
Urgent update re finding Biggles quickly.
We had a sighting of him in Burley late Tuesday, dashed over like crazy but missed him by about 15 mins it seems. He had been lying around this paddock all yesterday and was sleeping on gravel by the house cattle grid last night, was then around all today and playing with a couple of other dogs just before we arrived but something spooked him again and he was off into the wet woods. He's on the Dogs lost website and has been circulated around the NF Dog Walkers. today we put up about 27 posters, we live in hope but he seems to be getting too near the A31 at Picket Post.
Saturday 31st October to today - can you help please?

I Tweet regularly throughout most days and you can find me

A good example of the success of social media was when a New Forest shetland pony was stolen. The word got out and within a short time she was brought back onto the forest.
I get regular Horse Watch bulletins which is a great way to inform you on New Forest Lost Stolen Found
You can Contact Me and I'll put the post up and also Tweet it on my 2 accounts.

New Forest Lost Stolen Found -Past postings
Please see the posting below - Sam, a little Jack Russell dog who went missing at Rufus Stone on Sunday has been found but was sadly in a fatal accident.
Recent information I've received from our local Police tells us there have been increased dog thefts in the New Forest National Park, as well as throughout the UK. Please keep your dog close to you at all times and don't leave it in your car, even for a minute.
The thieves seem to be targeting gun dogs in particular but any dog stolen is a tragedy to the owners.
Over the last year we have been successful in finding both stolen and lost pets. Please be careful when on the New Forest, as elsewhere in the country. Your dog may be stolen, sometimes from right in front of you.
If you use the form below to post your details, please try to supply a photo - if you are posting and are quite upset because you have lost your pony, donkey, dog or other animal a photo will really help others who may have spotted it.
I will post everything which is sent through to newforest-life.com but cannot accept any responsibility for the outcome of any information posted on my site.
New Forest Lost-Stolen-Found is the place for you to let us know about your pony, donkey, dog or other animal.
