Andy Murray appeals for help online after his shoes and wedding ring were stolen in California as he prepares for the Indian Wells Masters.

Andy Murray has appealed for help on social media after his shoes and wedding ring were stolen in California.

The three-time Grand Slam winner is currently in California preparing for the Indian Wells Masters, where he is due to face France's Adrian Mannarino on Friday.

However, Murray has suffered an early setback ahead of the tournament after revealing that his shoes - with his wedding ring tied to them - have been stolen after he left them out to dry overnight.

Murray said on Instagram: "Last night after dinner I got back in the car to go back to the hotel and the car didn't smell great. Basically I'd left my tennis shoes in there. it's been 39 degrees so my tennis shoes are pretty damp, sweaty. So I decided when I got back to the hotel that the shoes needed some air, I needed to dry them out a little bit.

"I have no balcony in my room and I didn't want to leave them in my room as it would stink the room out. So I thought I'm going to leave the shoes underneath the car, to get some air to them and dry them out overnight.

"Anyway, when I got back to the car in the morning, the shoes were gone. So my tennis shoes for the tournament had been stolen, so I had to go to the local pro shop and buy different shoes, different brand, which isn't the end of the world, but obviously not ideal.

"But as I was preparing for my practice, my physio said to me: 'Where's your wedding ring?' And I thought: 'Oh no.' I basically tie my wedding ring to my tennis shoes while I'm playing because I can't play with it on my hand.

"So, yeah, my wedding ring's been stolen as well. Needless to say, I'm in the bad books at home, so I want to try to find it. So if anyone could share this, or have any clue where they may be, it would be very helpful, so if we can try and get them back and get to the bottom of it, it would be much appreciated."

Murray has been married to Kim Sears - daughter of ex-player Nigel Sears - since April 2015, and the couple have four children together.
