Natalie Jones, 41, thinks that her boxer staffordshire bull terrier cross, called Milo, was taken in the early hours of the morning on December 22 at the Halifax end of Haymarket.

Milo was with Natalie's partner who was enjoying a few drinks in Norwich but he can not remember the exact moment the dog was taken as he believes his drink was spiked.

'All he can remember is a homeless man hanging around near them and then a man matching his description was then seen with a dog which sounded like Milo at the train station later that morning,' said Natalie.

Police have been informed of the theft but Natalie thinks the man may now be in the Basildon area of Essex. He is described as speaking with an Irish accent, over 6ft tall, with a grey goatee beard and he was wearing boots.

Milo was wearing a blue collar on the day he was taken and he has a distinctive trait which is that he carries the end of the collar in his mouth.

Natalie added: 'My children, who are seven and 12, are just devastated as Milo has made such a positive impact on their lives and I just want to be able to get him back for them.'
