Members of the public are being urged to keep an eye out for an unusual bird which has gone missing from the Fakenham area.

The European Eagle Owl is believed to have been stolen from a back garden at a property in Tunn Street sometime between 3am and 8.45am this morning Friday 27 June 2014.

The owl, which is brown in colour and fully grown, has been with its owner for around a year.

Officers are keen to speak to anyone who believes they may have seen the bird which, if set free, could have travelled a significant distance by now.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Paul Scarborough at Fakenham Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
