The distraught owners of a dog missing from his home near Market Drayton for more than two weeks have taken to the internet in a desperate bid to find him.

Kathryn Poultney has taken to Twitter and Facebook, where people can download missing posters of Jake the grey Bedlington terrier – who has been sighted apparently trying to make his way home.

The seven-year-old family pet went missing from on January 12. His owners believe he was stolen but managed to escape his captors somewhere in Staffordshire.

Recent sightings of Jake appear to suggest he is now edging closer to home with every passing day.

Mrs Poultney said the distinctive looking pooch was spotted at Keele Services on the M6 on January 20, and the latest sighting was at Norton in Hales, near Market Drayton, on Thursday.

She said: "We believe Jake may have been stolen but he is now only about five miles from our home in Longhill Lane, Audlem.

"Amazingly it would appear he is slowly making his way home.

"A very kind resident of Norton in Hales nearly got hold of him but a fast approaching car frightened him and he ran off."

Jake is micro-chipped and was wearing two coloured fabric collars with tags when he disappeared. A reward is being offered for information leading to his safe return. Call (01270) 812556, 07891548127 or 07525471548.
