Mr and Mrs Gillam's daughter Emma Hume, 31, from just outside North Walsham, said: 'We are all worried about her and want her back. There are so many people helping us. It is quite amazing.'

Ms Hume said Auburn, who was living in a public shelter in Romania, was frightened of people, and warned anyone who sighted her not to approach.

She said: 'If she gets scared she may never come back.'

Mrs Hume asked for people who spotted Auburn to get in contact to let the family know where she was seen.

Once they have an idea of the route she is taking, humane traps can be set.

The family have also been leaving out food the pet.
