AN appeal has been launched to find a missing rare fox that has been spotted in Stourbridge.

Misha, a captive bred female silver fox, went missing from her owner's home in the Red Hill area of Stourbridge in June 2017.

Desperate searches to find her remained fruitless, until a sighting was reported to wildlife group Black Foxes UK this week.

Wildlife watchers contacted the team after they spotted a similiar looking fox in Stourbridge on Thursday, October 17.

The team could not confirm the exact location, but said the site she was spotted on is due for redevelopment, so she needs to be located soon for her own safety.

Black Foxes UK are now appealing for anyone who spots the animal to get in touch so they can bring her to sanctuary.

Black Foxes UK is a social enterprise which works to raise awareness and understanding of silver foxes and other red fox anomalies.

Anyone who spots Misha should call 07490127017.
