At some point between late Friday evening and the early hours of Saturday morning a thief gained access to their shed, which also houses pigs, ponies and sheep, and kidnapped them.

Farm shop supervisor, Zuzana Zrak, said: “We haven’t got a clue what time it happened.

“We did try and find them because when you call them they come back.

“They are very friendly - they are so missed.

“Helen, who feeds them and looks after them and cleans them, is very sad. She’s like their mum really.

“I just hope they turn up.”

A police spokesman confirmed officers are investigating the theft.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Izzy and Elca, please call the police on 101 quoting crime reference number XY/014155/15.
