Mark Davis has been reunited with his cue after having it stolen during the European Masters in Milton Keynes.
Davis was forced to withdraw from the European Masters after his cue was taken from a hotel car park on Friday.
He was due to face Mark Selby in the Last 32 of the season’s second ranking event at the Marshall Arena, but was unwilling to play with a different cue.
The 48-year-old veteran of the tour had used the exact cue for 20 years and was left distraught after it went missing while he had propped it against his car and briefly returned to the hotel reception.
Davis appealed for the return of the cue and even offered a reward of £1,000 with no questions asked.
A number of his fellow professionals, including Mark Williams and Alan McManus, joined him in reaching out to the public on social media.
On Friday evening, Davis received an email from a member of the public and the cue has now been returned to him.
Davis wrote on Facebook: “Just to let you know, I have got the cue back now.
“Just want to say thank you to everyone who shared the message about it and helped to get it returned. Thanks again.”
The power of twitter, MD has got his cue back . Mark Davis would like to thank everyone for helping him get his cue back, 👏👏👏👏
