There have been no confirmed sightings of five-year-old Yorkshire terrier cross Keegan since he disappeared from his owner's garden on October 15.

Marie Reidie, who lives off Thetford Road, East Wretham, near Thetford, had gone inside to make a coffee and returned at 7.20am to find Keegan and his sons George and Twiglet had gone.

After searching around the garden she found no evidence they had escaped.

After making several calls, Dogs Trust said two dogs had been found more than five miles away in a lay-by close to Harling Road Railway Station at around 9am.

George was found with skinned paws and was passing blood and it has been suggested his injuries could have been sustained while being dragged or thrown from a car. But there was no sign of Keegan.

Miss Reidie said: 'They [the two dogs] have been very subdued and upset and they have lost their sparkle. It makes me feel sick and it is very heartbreaking. They have never been apart before.'

She added: 'Keegan is lovely and has a very soft nature. He is the sort of dog who will sit on your lap. There is not a bad bone in his body. He was bought as a family pet and that is what he is.'

CCTV given to the family from close to the railway station shows two dogs running after a black Corsa on the B1111 at around 8.17am. Miss Reidie says she does not know what has happened but would like to speak to the person in the car.

The family have walked the route from their home to the station twice, once to look for the tan and black dog and the other to look for his body.

The 35-year-old is pleading for any information with a substantial reward for information leading to a safe return being offered.

She said if someone has Keegan to just 'drop him off at the Dogs Trust and we would be none the wiser'.

She added the two other dogs 'don't leave your side' and said the house is a 'very empty place without him'.

People are encouraged to check their car dashcams.
