A family whose beloved dog was stolen from their farm has issued another appeal for his return.

Elizabeth Barber’s three-year-old Jack Russell, Chutney, went missing from Cavick House Farm in Wymondham at around 4.30pm on Friday, April 3.

Regular customers later reported seeing him being bundled into a red car occupied by a man, a woman with blonde hair and a girl with black hair.

Chutney has a special place in the family’s heart having served as loving companion to Miss Barber’s sister, Charlotte, who died in 2018 following a near-lifelong battle with brain tumours.

But almost two weeks after Chutney was taken he has still not been found, despite the family offering a £1000 reward.

“You wonder how much longer this can continue,” said Miss Barber. “We’re at the stage where we don’t care about arrests - we just want him home.

“Everyone’s got a conscience and you would think the link with Charlotte might convince someone to do the right thing.”
