MIRIAM Vale State School students are upset that two guinea pigs have been stolen from the Prep and Year 1 classrooms.

Miriam Vale Police said the two female guinea pigs, who had been with the class for a week, didn't escape and weren't taken by another animal.

They had been stolen.

Officer in charge senior sergeant Owen Harms said the kids were very sad and some were crying yesterday.

The students have made up posters in the hope their pets will be returned.

One wrote: "I am sad, very very very sad, because our guinea pigs need to be looked after."

The last person to see the guinea pigs was teacher Mrs Bryant, who fed them at  5pm on Saturday.

She returned on Sunday morning to discover they were gone.

Police would like any information about who was in the school on Saturday night.

"Someone knows something and we will find out who did it," Snr Sgt Harms said.

Anyone with information should call the Miriam Vale Police Station on 4974 6000.
