Just a suggestion has anyone tried a bbq in area she went missing early hours seems best .. hope she’s found soon
So sad. We will continue to look for charlie when ever we can.
Thank ypu for the update. We will continue to tweet out Charley's details respectfully on twitter in hope that it may help and Pray that Charley is found. We're a nice group of people on twitter with only the animal's interest at heart, so if you need anything do let us know.
a dog missing in uk was found now in ireland with the help of these ones - worth a try - https://www.happytailsdetective.co.uk/
A message from my mother:
"This is Brenda, co-owner of still missing dog Charley.
It is now 7 weeks since my husband lost our beloved little Charley in Cranham Woods (July 28th). We have searched and researched and searched over and over again to find her. Spending hours and hours and covering a huge distance. Witcombe Estates kindly gave my husband permission to search areas not open to the public. Charley was and is very much loved and missed by her 'sister' dog companion. The void she has left is almost impossible to bear and the not knowing what has happened to her is an insurmountable sadness. Because of her age and her poor health: sight and hearing impairment, arthritus and early dementia, it is with extreme sadness and reluctance that I am going to have to accept that there is unlikely to be any closure for us now. We shall continue to look for her but each revisit to Buckholt Woods is more painful. The family have been greatly saddened and hugely upset by some of the issues, critisisms and unpleasantness that has occurred on Facebook groups and over search details during our search for our pet at this terribly upsetting time. Myself and my husband have removed posters from trees in the area after the recent complaints. Some posters remain in the area.
I would like to sincerely thank all those who have tried to help us to find Charley. My daughter is unable to enter into discussions and individual messaging if anyone has any issues with this final message and I hope that you will all understand this.
Should anyone, at any time, recover Charley's purple and white collar or see or find anything else then we would be very grateful indeed to hear. Thank you, Brenda."

Have had a call with concerns that people are nailing posters onto trees.
Very sadly there have still not been any sightings at all of Charley, despite extensive searching. My Mum and Dad will be spending even more time searching over this weekend. It will be three weeks tomorrow since she went missing. They are desperately seeking closure now. A terribly sad situation. :-((
Has there still not been any sightings of this poor dog?
Been out looking in Buckholt Woods again today. Sorry I saw no sign of Charley.
Saw one lady driving in a white transit type van that reversed down into the woods & drove back out about 5 mins later. Saw her whilst I trying to get grass seed out of my dogs fur. Charley is going to need to go to the groomers when we find her. Come on Charley come out now, its time for us to find you & get you home
My son and I had a look around the area yesterday but, sadly, nothing. It is puzzling how a dog can disappear, seemingly, into thin air. Maybe posters in the nearby settlements of Cranham, Birdlip and even Brockworth, Painswick and Stroud, if not done already?
NB It is not entirely true that we saw nothing: there were two pairs of walkers walking the Cotswold Way and there was a tractor driver cutting the hay in the field behind The Paddocks. On the Cotswold Way itself there looked to be hoofprints perhaps a rider/horse from a nearby farm. Also on the Cotswold Way, turning right at the bottom of the track past the houses there appeared to be a newish track going up the steep hill past a bowl shaped area. Possibly animal or maybe made by searchers. The bracken right by the CW didn't seem disturbed but the track became apparent higher up. It would have come out in the field at the back of the house The Paddocks, as mentioned before. I expect all this is of doubtful value but I thought I should mention it.Last edited: 2018-08-10 13:28:18 by Julie88
Thank you for looking ShabsN. My parents are Charley’s owners and they have been searching after 5.30pm each day when they finish work.
I went out yesterday & walked around for about 4 hours. No sign of Charley ☹ I didn't see anybody only a squirrel

Thank you Sarah. I have looked at the link and checked and the dog pictured sadly isn’t Charley I’m afraid.

Thank you Missingpetsgb
So sad, people arguing doesn't help find Charley but hinders the search. Charley is an urgent dog, so priority is her only.
Shared again Twitter.
Only here for the dogs-keep looking and sharing for Charley.
Ally was the first non-family member to help the family with the fingertip searching and her thermal camera is a highly specialised tool that she has kindly used to help in the search. She spent 5 hours searching with my Dad one day and then returned the next day to search again. Both the camera and the fingertip searching has it’s specific role and nobody has discredited the use of one in favour of the other at all as they are both valid methods. We have expressed thanks to everybody who has helped as some of the family members have particularly complicated limiting health issues and so we have been very grateful for additional people helping to search.
Updates have moved to here to avoid the unpleasantness on Facebook- please don’t start it up on here. It is a distressing enough time for the family as it is without internet disagreements. Can it please stop :-( :-(Last edited: 2018-08-05 09:41:30 by Charleydog
Dont worry ally people who are in the area and are actually physically searching know that a lot more has been done than using your camera, its just one of the tools to work along side, many local people have been out helping, finger tip searches, looking in building barns etc,over walls the list is endless.

Thankyou for updating Charley dog .. can I also just add that contrary to rumours going around about only a thermal camera being used to search for this dog as it is my camera I know that my camera was used for possibly around 10% of the whole search to cover areas where it would pick up any heat source and the rest of the time it has been good all fashion hands and knees searching under bushes and under tree stumps and walls also risking life and limb searching steep ravines and I know that people are still on hands and knees doing their best to try and find ithis old girl
Thank you to everyone who has helped / is helping with the search for Charley. It’s now exactly a week since she went missing. Very sadly still no luck in finding her and no sightings at all i’m afraid. :-(
Still no sign of this poor girl,will be out again tomorrow,hoping to cover more ground. Searching further afield, searching more brambles and paths

Thank you charleydog we searched the road to the left of the carpark park the other night, will be back out tomorrow to search again
Thankyou for updating Charleydog .. I am taking a break from facebook .. so really appreciate your updates x
A friend searched this morning further down the main road from where Charley went missing and also walked through Popes Wood but sadly there was no sign of Charley.
My Dad obtained permission yesterday afternoon to search on the reservoir land and the area belonging to the reservoir between the reservoir and the woods was searched in the afternoon and evening but very sadly without any luck.Last edited: 2018-08-03 09:40:41 by Charleydog
The search was extended tonight to cover more ground from where she went missing, also road sides were looked at, still no sign of this poor girl.
I have been to the area tue/wed where Charley went missing .. met up with the owner … ive put 2 more posters in place with extra info to make it clearer for people to go to the right area to search … The owner feels that Charley may have headed down hill due to her poor mobility towards fields which eventually lead to a reservoir … there is a poster in a carpark close to the reservoir in case she heads that way .. there are people that were going to search this evening and do some chopping to undergrowth in the area just in case Charley is stuck somewhere ..
