Get Sherlock on the case! If crime can strike at the glittering Emmy awards, just where is a lady's purse safe in this dastardly world?

Sherlock special The Abominable Bride scooped Best TV movie at this year's Emmy Awards, but the joy of the prize was somewhat tainted for Sherlock actor Amanda Abbington, who tweeted that her purse was stolen at the glitzy ceremony!

It seems Abbington was (understandably) feeling like a little Victorian justice was in order as many of her valuables were in the purloined purse.

When a concerned fan asked Abbington for an update, she responded that although she "hung around until everyone had left the auditorium" there was "nothing there." Damn!

Let's hope that the Case of the Missing Purse is resolved soon. Get our best man on the case:

Have you ever helped someone recover a stolen item?
