A globe-trotting inflatable snowman who disappeared from a garden last Christmas has sent postcards to its owner from exotic destinations around the world.
The 5ft blow-up snowman, who signs his name Frosty, went missing from Helen Bevan's back garden two weeks before Christmas last year.
Since then Mrs Bevan, 42, of Tondu, south Wales, has received postcards from Tenerife, Antigua, Thailand, Mexico, Malaysia and Hong Kong, all signed with the words "all my love, Frosty".
Mrs Bevan said she has only seen Frosty once since his disappearance.
She said: "I was shocked when I heard a knock at the door on Christmas night and found Frosty with a videotape strapped to his body.
"Someone had filmed him having a drink at pubs, playing snooker and shopping in the local supermarket.
"The tape also showed him trying to get into Parc Prison and at the police station."
Mrs Bevan, who is married, said Frosty then went on his travels again and as the new year went on she began receiving postcards from around the world.
"At first I thought it was really funny. The postcards were amusing with Frosty complaining about the heat and telling tales of his travels.
"But I have no idea who the practical joker is."
