    Lost Terrapin - Help Please!

    A Message from Lucia

    "Herbie is a friendly but adventurous terrapin. He went missing from my friends house in Ingram Street, Malmesbury, about 6 weeks ago.

    Please keep an eye when you walk around, especially near the river, and have a look in your gardens and sheds.

    I give a £500 reward to the person who brings Herbie home safely.

    If you find Herbie, contact me on 079290048992

    Thank you very much Lucia"
