Actor Warwick Davis has enlisted the help of his Twitter followers and celebrity friends to help find his stolen caravan.
The Star Wars and Harry Potter star posted a series of tweets appealing for the return of his mobile home after it was taken in Yaxley, Cambridgeshire, on Thursday night.
The 3ft 6" tall actor tweeted: "If you stole our caravan or know who did, please can we have the sentimental items back that are of no use to you? Special holiday memories."
Catchphrase presenter Stephen Mulhern was among those to show his support after he tweeted: "Whoever has nicked @WarwickADavis caravan you will be hunted down! Big mistake."
Asked by DJ Chris Moyles whether there was any news, Davis replied: "It was spotted heading east of Yaxley, Peterborough towed by blue pickup, sparks flying from a dragging wheel lock."
After one Twitter user posted a photo of a miniature caravan with the caption "new security photo released of the theft!", Davis responded: "Not funny... but they didn't steal my sense of humour so I'll give you that one. Nicely played!"
Davis later thanked his 530,000 followers on Twitter for their "amazing support".
The 45-year-old is due to appear in forthcoming Star Wars movie, Star War s: Episode VII, following on from roles in two previous instalments of the saga. He has already played Wicket the Ewok in 1983's Return Of The Jedi and he took the roles of Weazel and Wald in The Phantom Menace in 1999.
Cambridgeshire Police confirmed it was investigating the theft of a caravan.
