A popular member of the Sumner community has gone AWOL - Peppa the kunekune pig.

The five-month-old black and ginger piglet escaped through an open gate at the Lestrange's family home in Sumner on  Sunday, and now after almost four days of fearing for her safety they hope the community can ramp up its effort to locate the pet.

Mother Kerri Lestrange and her four children have posted pictures of Peppa on lamp posts, published a notice in a Sumner community newsletter and even taken to Facebook in a bid to raise awareness.

She was last sighted near the Sumner shops on Sunday, but that was all the family had heard following the disappearance.

''She has become well-known in the community, all the kids at school know her as well as in the community,'' Lestrange said.

''Unfortunately Sunday was really busy here in Sumner and there were a lot more people around then normal,

I'm hoping she's in someone's garden, rummaging around and eating the grass.''

She said if anyone spotted Peppa, they could contact her on (03) 3266057.
