A £1,000 reward is being offered to anyone who can help bring home a beloved pet which has been missing for four days. 

Buddy the Patterdale Terrier bolted from his home in Oak Avenue in Loddon, on Sunday, January 16, as his owner Connor Rodwell opened the front door.

The pup was later seen on Sunday in the neighbouring village of Chedgrave running in the direction of Pits Lane - but has not been spotted since. 

Mr Rodwell, who is a firefighter in Loddon, said: “I came in the front door and he bolted out which is unlike him. I have never seen him run so quick. It happened in a flash. 

“We followed him down to the local boat yard but we lost him.  

“I’m really worried for him. If he has ever got out before he has always stayed in the area, but this time he has just vanished. I really want him home, he means a lot to me."
