We spoke to the vet and checked her markings. Very similar but we don't believe it is Lily unfortunately. Has this dog been re-homed now? I hope so.

Lily has been missing for a whole year & could be anywhere by now so please look out for her EVERYWHERE. Lily’s family have proactively searched and followed up every lead, travelling all across the country to ensure that nothing is missed. They have worked tirelessly & will continue to do so until Lily is found

Information can be given direct to Warwickshire Police or by contacting Crimestopper anonymously on 0800 555 111, you can also report information in confidence to on 0844 800 3220.

Lily is very much missed, her family have hurt every one of the 365 days that have passed since she was taken from them & the search will not stop until she is safely home x
Bless her... Will share her again to xx

Not sure how old Lily is but partially sighted older blue roan Cocker bitch found & posted on FB, at Great Tew main roads & taken to Hook Norton vets. Long shot but may be worth a check. Last edited: 2018-02-03 11:27:52 by MADGunDogs

Possible sighting of Lily reported in Stratford Upon Avon, along the waterside with a tall, thin man. This was a few days ago, but the dog may be walked regularly in that area so would be great to raise awareness of Lily please in this area. If anyone recognises this description as someone who has owned a dog in this area prior to when Lily was stolen, please ask them to get in touch so we can rule out this dog from the investigation. If people are able to help Lily's family get posters up in the area, hand out flyers to the vendors & hirers along the river please do contact Lily's mom on the number above x
Hope your dog is back soon

We have received a vague report of a dog matching Lily's description seen on Sandon Road, Edgbaston, B17. We would be really grateful if helpers in that area could please let us know about any roan cocker spaniels living in this area in order that we can rule out that this dog may be Lily. Information can be given directly to Lily's family or by contacting the Doglost Helpline: 0844 800 3220 or: 01633 668 364. Alerts requested x

Lily's owner has had a late report from someone that a dog matching Lily's description ran out in front of their car as they crossed the canal bridge on the day she went missing. The person tried to catch her but she ran off through fields which would have taken her to the recycle centre (CV37). There were three other people around who may have stopped. This area was thoroughly searched on the day Lily disappeared and there were searchers in that area most of the day and the days that followed her disappearance. If you are in the area or were in the area on 25th March please get in touch with Lily's owner of Police if this reminds you of anything you may have seen x

Article in Stratford Herald x
POLICE are linking the thefts of two female Cocker Spaniels who were stolen from their owner’s gardens within a matter of days of each other.

A black, female Cocker Spaniel, named Milly, was taken from a rear garden on Church Road, in Snitterfield, between 1.30pm and 2.30pm on Wednesday 8th March. Milly has short, trimmed hair and an Aztec-style dog collar with her name tag on.

Police have also confirmed this week they have received a report of a recently-trimmed long-haired blue roan, female Cocker Spaniel, named Lily, taken from her front garden in Bishopton Lane, Stratford-upon-Avon, at around 5.45pm, on Saturday 25th March.

A Warwickshire Police spokesman said: “Police are remaining open-minded into possible links between the two incidents and urge anyone who may have witnessed suspicious behaviour in either area on the times and dates stated to call police on 101.”

Lily’s owner Isobel Hall told the Midweek Herald that Lily had been outside for only ten minutes, when her husband realised she wasn’t there and started looking for her.

She said: “My husband, James, and children were at home and Lily was in the garden. We thought she was lost rather than stolen, until this weekend, when the police said they were linking the two incidents. There hasn’t been any sightings of her.”

Isobel thanked friends, neighbours and farmers for their support in checking nearby fields and the canal, plus handing out posters.

She added: “It’s sad enough for us, but I have four daughters, aged between 17 and ten, as well as a 21-year-old son, in Scotland, who has been looking on dog’s sites to try and help.”

Milly’s owner Iain Wardman said he was keeping everything crossed that one day she will come home.

Speaking about the police linking the two thefts, he said: “It just seemed a little strange, they are exactly the same breed and they are both female.”

On the day Milly went missing, Iain was at work and his wife Kathryn was at home, when she let the family’s two dogs into the garden. When she called the dogs back into the house, only one returned.

Iain said: “There were some people walking up the lane, who have given their statement to the police. The witnesses saw two very overly-friendly gentleman walking along the public footpath, wearing sunglasses.”

That evening, Iain said he looked all over the fields in the area, as far as Norton Lindsey, and made flyers that were handed out in the surrounding villages.

He continued: “I have to say the one thing I have noticed is that all the local community have been very supportive – unfortunately I can’t thank them all individually, but they have been fantastic.

“The hardest part is the children. I have a 14-year-old daughter and a three-year-old son. It’s so difficult trying to explain to my son about why Milly isn’t here.”

Staying positive, Iain added: “We have a third child due in four weeks and we have every confidence that Milly will come back.”

Both Milly and Lily are listed on national website, DogLost. Jayne Hayes, the website’s founder, told the Midweek Herald: “I set up the website to reunite missing pets with their owners, 15 years ago, after my dog was stolen.

“Through members of the public my dog was

There have been no sightings of Lily despite an extensive search of the area & postering campaign, she is therefore considered stolen & a CRN has been issued by Warks Police, they are investigating Lily's disappearance with that of Milly (ID112409) who also disappeared from the area recently x

there is a reward section on Lily's page but I don't know how to edit that. We are happy to offer a generous cash reward for anyone who returns Lily. She means the world to us.

No sightings so far. Really do appreciate your help. Scoured neighbouring fields by foot again today and roads by car last night. Nothing so far. Thank you.
Are there any sightings of this girlie? I'm local to postcode so can help if needed.
