CAN you help reunite a pirate with his pet polecat?

Cap’n Jack Sparrow lookalike Bevan Hoy is down in the dumps after his peculiar pet went walkabout.

Bevan, aged 43, has been out and about putting up posters, and calling for people to get in touch if they have seen Coco, his 18-month-old ferret cross.

He’s put up notices all around his home in Leverton Gardens off London Road, and in the General Cemetery, all along Ecclesall Road and as far up as Nether Edge.

“She is in heat so I think she may have gone off looking for a mate,” said Bevan, who is unemployed but busks and dresses as Captain Jack Sparrow for community events.

“She either followed me out of the flat, or she jumped from the window. I live on the second floor so I hope she followed me.”

Bevan said his girlfriend Liz Wales was very distressed that Coco had disappeared – and so is Coco’s brother, Zaphod.
