Mum was pottering about in the front garden just now (you didn't think I did all the fowers in the garden, did you?) pulling out weeds and such, when she came across a strange round rock half buried in the dirt. She dug it out and was atounded to discover she was holding a turtle. But not just A turtle; it was Shelley! Looks like she didn't get too far after her escape, and simply found a quiet place to burrow in for the winter. Mum says the silicone is still in place, but the crack in her shell is almost invisible.
