Daphne Codling from Rugby, Warks, had been enjoying a picnic at Thornham on Wedsnesday lunchtime, when her nine-year-old red setter Amber wandered off.

Since then, she and villagers have been searching the lanes and the salt marsh, but so far no trace of the dog has been found.

“I haven’t been away all year because I’ve been trying to keep away from people,” said Ms Codling.

“We just got here at the back of Thornham, we had a picnic, we went for a little walk and she just disappeared.

“If she’d seen anything like wildlife she’d have been so excited you’d have heard her. I can’t believe no-one’s seen her.”

Ms Codling said Amber is a timid dog, who would hide if she saw someone coming. She said locals had been helping to keep an eye out for her pet.

“I can’t speak highly enough of Thornham,” she said. “Everyone’s been helping me. The fishermen have been fantastic, the worm diggers.”

Mrs Codling has been putting up posters around nearby Hunstanton. If you have seen Amber, call 07933 741842.
