The owner of a black Labrador retriever missing from Brandon has said he is starting to worry for her welfare.

Bess went missing from Sweden Place at around 4.30pm on Sunday, March 4.

The two-and-a-half year old was last seen on Friday, March 16 in the Brandon area but has not been seen since.

Described as a friendly dog her owner Lee McKay said the experience has been a nightmare.

“It is not something I would wish on anyone,” he said. “I cannot sleep to tell the truth. I know people will say it is just a dog.

“I am up at 5am looking for her and when I get home I am looking well into darkness.”

Mr McKay, who lives in Brandon, has asked people to keep a look out for her around the town, at Brandon Country Park and in Thetford Forest.

In addition to gardens and outbuildings and sheds where she could be hiding.

He said people should not approach her as she could be nervous and may run off, but to call and report the sighting.

If you see Bess or have a known location of her call Lee McKay on 07712492448 or 07904045756.
