A man is asking for help with the commission a replica of a missing statue of Peter Pan from a Lowestoft garden.

The statue of Peter Pan stood in the middle of a small lake in Kensington Gardens, but was thought to have been removed in 1985 and has not been seen since.

David Warner and his wife Catherine launched an appeal in December 2017 to find out what happened to the statue, but following Catherine’s death on January 31 this year, he is now looking to commission a replica statue.

Mr Warner is now looking for people who may be interested in the commissioning of the statue.

The original Peter Pan statue is a bronze sculpture of J M Barrie’s famous character.

It was commissioned by Barrie and made by Sir George Frampton, and is displayed co-incidentally in Kensington Gardens in London, close to Barrie’s home on Bayswater Road.
