We’ll meet again?

A man hopes to be reunited with an old pet.

As a child growing up in Billingham, County Durham, Steve White always thought his pet tortoise, Sally, had escaped through a hole in the fence back in 1978.

But then just days before he died, Steve’s dad made a confession. In reality, his dad had given her away to a man in a club for eating his prize-winning leeks and busy Lizzies.

Recently, Steve’s daughter, India has been pestering him to get a tortoise but he refuses, saying he ‘already has one’. India thought about trying to reunite Steve and the tortoise and posted the request on Facebook.

The search for Sally is now on, reports the Gazette Live.
