A teddy bear travelling from London with the Moughtin-Mumby family has been lost in Mablethorpe with the fear he might have been washed out to sea.

The story starts off with Anastasia Moughtin-Mumby,5, her twin sister Joy and her four-year-old sister Zoe who are from London.

The girls travelled to Louth recently to visit their grandparents with their mummy and daddy and with them in tow was a bear called Barnaby.

Barnaby comes from Boutcher School in Walworth, South London and it was Anastasia’s turn to take him home for the half term holidays.

Barnaby Bear has travelled all over the world including South Africa, Australia and America.

During his stay in Louth, the girls treated Barnaby to a day out in Mablethorpe where they all had a lovely day on the beach, collecting shells, building sandcastles, and taking a ride on a donkey.

Towards the end of the day they went for a walk along the beach and played in the sand dunes.

But an hour later, a surge of panic struck the three young girls, as they were heading back to their grandparents house, they realised Barnaby was missing.

By this point, it was dark, and to make things worse, when they left the beach the tide was coming in, so Barnaby might have washed out to sea.

Anastasia’s mum, dad and granddad raced back to the beach with torches in search of Barnaby.

They looked everywhere, but Barnaby is no where to be found.

Will Barnaby be found? Has he been washed out to sea?
