Police appealed to find Remus at the time, with a spokesman saying it was unknown whether he wandered off or was stolen due to his extremely friendly nature as a result of being hand-reared.

One year later, Dale is desperate for closure on what has been a traumatic experience for her.

The Garstang resident said: “I’m trying to stay hopeful but it’s been a long time. He could be anywhere now.

“Even if he’s dead, I need to know what has happened to him. I still have to try and find him.”

The 23-year-old added: “Just because he is a lamb and not a conventional pet like a dog or a cat, it doesn’t mean I don’t think about him, wonder where he is and what happened to him.

“I just want hope to get him back. I’m not interested in going to the police if I don’t have to. There won’t be any questions asked, even if he just appears back in the field.”

Remus is a Soay sheep, which are much smaller than modern domesticated sheep but hardier, found in the St Kilda Archipelago, about 40 miles from the Western Isles of Scotland.
