UPDATED: Filly still missing after being stolen from a Langley farm

Police asking if anyone has information about the safe return of this horse stolen Sunday night or Monday morning (Aug. 8).

Police are asking for information to help locate this filly that was stolen from its farm on Telegraph Trail Sunday night. Its mother is frantic as the baby is still nursing.

Langley RCMP and the owners of a stolen foal are asking everyone to be on the lookout for the chestnut filly taken from a Langley farm overnight Sunday into Monday (Aug. 8).

According to police, sometime overnight a 12 day-old warmblood Oldenburg filly was stolen from a farm in the 7500 block of Telegraph Trail.

“The filly was only put out to pasture with her mother for the first time last night and was last seen at around 9:30 p.m.,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Largy. The filly, Liesel, would have a value of between $10,000 and $20,000.

“There is some indication the mare may have been sedated so the thief would likely have some horse knowledge,” said Largy.

“Its mother is frantic as the baby is still nursing. If you see anyone suspicious notify the police at once. Get this baby back to its mother and its owners,” said Lin Neufeld, a friend of the horse owners.

Police said on Wednesday, they were no closer to finding the foal. There hadn’t been any tips of its whereabouts, said Largy.

The filly is chestnut, about 120 pounds with three white socks and a big blaze. She is very friendly.

Anyone with information that might assist with this investigation is asked to call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. If you have information but need to stay anonymous call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Correction: In the initial article, it indicated that Lin Neufeld is the owner of the stolen horse. In fact, she is a friend of the family. The Times apologizes for the confusion.
