A SAD Easter bunny who went missing during a craft fair is appealing to readers to find his rightful owner.

The white carrot muncher, who is currently unnamed, was found at a craft fair in Hyde End, near Great Missenden, after organisers noticed him following a clean-up.

The fair, called Crafts at Hyde End, took place at Middle Grove Farm off the B485 Chesham Road from April 6 to April 9.

It is believed the Jellycat soft toy was lost on Easter Sunday after organisers were alerted to an upset young girl looking for a bunny. He is now living at a safe burrow in Aylsham, near Norwich, until the owner comes forward to claim the fluffy rabbit.

Charlotte Wootten, an organiser for Eastern Events Ltd, told the Star: "We had a little girl who came to the craft fair who was upset because she lost a bunny - but she didn't leave a telephone number.

"At the moment he is very happily in my living room and sitting with various others who have been left behind at other shows.

"We let him loose every once so often so he can have a run around."

Mrs Wootten said the fair had attracted more than 10,000 people over the Easter weekend and she hoped someone knew the bunny's owners.

She said the young girl, believed to have been the owner, had come to the event with her mother.

She said: "Staff spoke to her mother and they came back to see if we had found it at the end of the day but we hadn't.

"But he turned up later and must have hid himself somewhere.

"We often get things left behind like people's purses but there is at least a form of identification in them.

"But we don't get many forms of soft toys I must admit.

"He is rather lonely because all our bears are a lot older than he is so he has hasn't got a young bunch of people to play with."

Mrs Wootten is happy to return the bunny in the post to the rightful owner.
