A ‘flight risk’ suspect kidnapped a four-year-old lad's best friend, police have said.

The audacious aerial raid took place as the child, named Sam, had his back turned on his favourite teddy.

A dive bombing crook swooped at the opportunity and made off with the cuddly toy – sparking a man, or eh, gull hunt.

Cops in Anglesey, Wales, issued a detailed description of their prime suspect.

They said: "Dino was kidnapped a few days ago from the Pentraeth area, when his best friend, four year old Sam had his back turned.

“The suspect is described as a white male with a prominent yellow nose and wearing white a top with grey sleeves.

“He is considered a flight risk.

"No ransom has yet been demanded, however Sam has offered to swap all his other toys for the safe return of his pal."

Police are said to be hot on the tail of the wanted wing one, and have appealed on social media for information about the feathered fiend.

One person jokily replied: “I hope that villain will be doing bird!”.

As cops try their best to catch the seagull and turn him into a jailbird, Sam’s mum has been posting appeals of her own.

Mum Amy shared snaps of Dino on social media and urged people in the Pentraeth area to keep their eyes peeled.

“She wrote: "I’m hoping if he has been stolen [by a seagull] that he will have been dropped somewhere.

"I have a heartbroken little boy who has taken him on every adventure with him over the last four years and never slept a night without him."
