Pet owners praise helpers in hunt for missing dog

A COMMUNITY campaign to find a missing husky dog has touched his owners, who say they have been overwhelmed by the support of the public.

Storm, a four-year-old Husky, went missing from his home on Prospect Hill, in Great Cornard, at around 10.30pm on September 23.

His devastated owner, Rebecca Curran, 16, immediately put up posters and contacted local vets.

Within days, the missing dog had attracted huge interest from social network users, neighbours and members of the public.

Rebecca, who goes to Thomas Gainsborough School, said: “I can’t believe how many people have been helping to look for him.

“I’ve had calls from complete strangers saying they may have seen him, although sadly many of these have turned out to be false alarms.

“I just hope he is safe. We all miss him terribly.”

She added: “It is really overwhelming the amount of people wanting to help us find him – it’s been a real community effort.”

The family dog sneaked out of the garden gate while Rebecca’s dad was loading his van for the following day’s work.

Rebecca said: “We stayed up all night waiting for him to come back. It was raining and he hates the rain but he had gone.”

If anyone may have seen Storm or knows of his whereabouts, they should contact the Ardmore Vets Surgery in Cornard Road.
