The terrier cross went missing on Saturday, January 19. A week on, residents and dog walkers came out to search far and wide.

Ernie’s owner Joanne told the Comet: “It was an amazing turnout and myself and my family can not thank these people enough!

“To think a lot of the people don’t even know us! As they continue to help search for Ernie, it keeps us strong and so hopeful.

“We have had amazing support from local people, family, friends neighbours, young and old.

“Vicky Burrell from the RSPCA has been an unbelieveable help not just with the search, but emotionally too.

“Rob, the landlord at our local – The Orange Tree, Baldock – has been with us all the way and kind people lending us equipment to help in the search, the list is endless.”
