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.
Car break in Deadman Hill Sunday 4 November 2018 around 11a.m. Can you help?
"Our car window was smashed in Deadman Hill car park in New Forest on Sunday 4 November 2018 around 11am. A ladies shoulder bag was stolen with 1 large set of keys, 2 pairs of glasses, 1 sunglasses, make up and purse and 2 iphones.
Incredibly, we retrieved the 2 phones and wallet with cards (using find my iphone) to a stash in the scrub on the corner of Forest Road and Roger Penny Way. We couldn't find any trace of the keys, glasses or the handbag though.
The set of keys would be particularly useful to get back. They contain 2 electronic office door fobs, 1 ford fiesta car fob, 1 bike lock key, 1 black Stanley keyring, 1 office key, 2 house keys.
We reported to the police who had suggested they would likely have been discarded somewhere around the area. Images below".Thanks!
Here are the handbag details
Key fob details
If found please Contact me and I'll pass your details on.

Lost wedding ring Hurst Castle are 15-17 July
Hello - I have lost my wedding ring. It's a man's titanium ring (silvery colour) with the words Forever engraved on the inside. I thin I lost it on the Shingle Bank on the way to Hurst Castle. Being titanium it feels much lighter than gold but only cost about £80 new so is fairly worthless - except to me! I'm willing to pay £100 reward if someone finds it and returns it to me. Long shot I know but perhaps a post here will work. Think I lost it between 12th and 15th July. Thanks, Pete. Please contact me if you have any info - many thanks.

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.

Can you help?

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.
I Tweet regularly throughout most days and you can find me
I don't use Facebook much so the Twitter accounts will be better at getting the news across.
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.
You can fill in the comment form below and I'll OK it and put it up to all the visitors who read New Forest Life
Update: This pony suddenly reappeared back on the New Forest. The publicity may have meant she was too hot to handle!

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.
