Carly claims: “Baymax was having dinner in the garden and when I came to check on him, he’d gone. I think someone stole him as there’s no physical way he could get out.

“We think there may have been a sighting near the graveyard leading up to Farley Hill and round behind the police station.

“My 17-month-old son, Alfie, keeps calling ‘B’ - it’s heartbreaking.”
