A £500 reward has been donated for information leading to the safe return of a charity's pony.
The pony, called Jeremy, is owned by equine charity People4ponies and disappeared without trace from the Morwenstow/Welcombe area on the Cornwall/Devon border two weeks ago. He was last seen on the evening of Saturday 27th March 2017.
Since Jeremy disappeared, local residents have assisted by searching the local area, and a Facebook page, “Help Find Jeremy”, has also been set up to help search for him.
Faye Stacey, head of People4ponies, said: “We are all devastated that Jeremy has disappeared. What is so strange is that there's no trace of him anywhere - it looks very much as if he has been taken.
"If he has indeed been stolen, he may no longer be in the area. He may have even been sold on. We are all extremely concerned for his welfare and continue to ask for the public’s help in finding him.
"One of our supporters has generously offered a £500 reward for information leading to the safe return of Jeremy in the hope that it might prompt someone to come forward with information.
"If someone does think they saw something, or think they have seen a pony matching Jeremy’s description we would ask them to get in touch."
Jeremy is an Exmoor X, bay gelding and is approximately 12hh.
