THE search for a missing Maltesers egg has continued through the night.
Seven-year-old Tom Booker called the situation ‘a nightmare’ and has vowed not to sleep until the egg is located.
He said: “Knowing there is chocolate in the garden but being unable to eat it is almost too much to bear.
“I cannot think about anything else.”
Booker’s mother Sarah said: “We offered to go to the shop and buy him two eggs because they are on offer now, but he won’t have it.
“He’s only a little kid but his face has gone all haggard and stubbly.”
Tom Booker added: “I will find this egg even if it means spending all my pocket money on a psychic.
“And if a fox took it then I will find that fox and I will kill it.”
