POLICE IN ENGLAND are searching for a reindeer who “snuck out” of a Christmas tree farm.

The albino reindeer is named Tinsel and had been at Friezeland Farm in Bosworth Water Park in Leicestershire.

Owner Toby Ryley who owns the business had bought Tinsel and another reindeer, Holly for £1,500.

However, in a post on Facebook, Ryley said she had gone missing.

He says he is keen to reunite the pair.

It comes with great regret to say Tinsel has gone missing, we have had all our rangers out looking for her, she was last spotted in Congerstone. Please contact us if you have any information on her where abouts. We would like to get her home safely #ReuniteHollyandTinsel.

Ryley told the BBC that he had bought the reindeer to run sleigh rides. He believes that she “snuck out” and is somewhere eating grass.

“It came from Finland so it should be warm for it,” he said.

“I mean it is a wild animal and I think it is having the life of Riley.”
