More than 50 people – including one with a drone – have been scouring Bodmin for a missing and beloved family pet.
Ruby the English springer spaniel vanished on Friday evening.
She escaped from the garden of The White House Care Home in Castle Street at around 7pm.
People in Bodmin have rallied together to help find Ruby, searching the icy ground and farmland – but the dog has not been found.
Owner Anthony Miller said his family were devastated and appealed for anyone with information to get in touch.
He said: “We’re not sure if she’s been taken because she’s not been found. It’s very strange that she’s been missing for 36 hours now.
“Sometimes she’d disappear for five or ten minutes and go to a neighbour’s garden and sniff around, but she’s never been gone so long before.”
The family have spent hours searching the area and Anthony thanked everyone, including strangers, who have given up their time to join the searches.
He said: “I was out looking for her last night and could heard people all over Bodmin calling her name and whistling to her. A lot of these people I don’t even know.
“There’s a lot of farm land at the back of Castle Street and we’ve have had one man take his drone up to look for her.”
Ruby is eight and a half years old and has a red collar. She is also micro-chipped.
Anyone with information is urged to call Anthony on 07415 142689.
