Victoria have sent you contact details as Shirley may not have seen your response.
Shirley - I'm sorry I cannot see what this post is apart from a missing Ottoburn which isnt Tilly. Is that the correct FB post that I can see?

from Jenny Brown
So another disappointing day today tracking Tilly in the Witney area where possible sightings have been.
I feel so much for Vicky and Simon who have there hopes raised and immediately dashed.
If anyone sees a possible sighting of Tilly can they PLEASE take a photo - it will help enormously.
Please continue to look out for Tilly - she could be anywhere.

We are very keen to speak to a very tall gentleman - over 6 foot and possibly wearing a blue jumper and jeans who was a passenger or driver of a black car travelling along the A4095 and then present near the Woodman Pub on Saturday 15th September between the hours of approximately 5.15 pm and 7 15 pm
Also if anyone has a dash cam and can check it during these hours.
Your help would be very much appreciated

from Tilly's owner
No sightings of Tilly today but then she may well have hidden from the rain. I have postered down by Crawley and Minster Lovell (old Minster only).
Small posters have been put through letter boxes on Mill Street, Witney (from More Ave onwards)
I have checked the field behind the BP garage on Hailey Road, twice today but nothing, but it was raining!
Tomorrow we will focus on letter boxing and postering the bottom end of Mill Street as a brownish dog with some white was spotted going into one of the drives (just before 3 people saw her heading up towards the Windrush Pub). We will also be walking in the surrounding fields, particularly behind the Windrush Pub area
If you do see her, (if you can) please try to take photo of her and the location (this may not be possible of course) but it would help to identify if this dog that has now been spotted 3 times yesterday is Tilly OR NOT
Please don’t chase her – this will only scare her and I imagine is what happened yesterday. Please follow up gently and call us on:
Vicky 079060 73673 or Simon 07977 049267
Thank you all for your support, I know a lot of you were out in this awful rain today looking for her!

From Tilly's owner


We have had 2 possible sightings today for Tilly both in Witney

Hailey Road – the field behind the BP garage. A rider spotted a dog walking along the hedgerow and thought it was strange there was no owner. He had only just seen my FB post and just contacted me to let me know. The dog was mostly brown (which she may well be now after 3 weeks)

11.30am – Mill Street Witney, she was then followed to The Windrush Pub where 3-4 people tried to catch her without any luck.
We don’t know where she went from there – if you were one of those people following her, please call us (ex Michelle)

We don’t know if she was heading towards Crawley or onwards to Minster Lovell

If you think you see her, IF POSSIBLE try to take a photo so that we avoid wasting time searching in the wrong area. Try to get an idea of her size, if she is/is not wearing a collar and her colouring.

Don’t approach her, follow her quietly and please call us so that we can try to get her

Many thanks

Vicky – 079060 73673
Simon – 07977 049267"

Tilly is still missing, we have had no sightings and this is now day 12, SOMEBODY must know something. Please continue to be vigilant and if you see her, please do not approach her, please call us on 079060 73673 or 07977 049267

Network Rail have been notified.
Don't like saying this but it is probably worth notifying Network Rail due to close proximity of Wilcote to Combe railtrack. Also presume someone has checked in the abandoned North Leigh Garden Centre site. Last edited: 2018-09-21 11:35:24 by Catwhothinksitsadog
Tilly now has a page - please send us a message if you are able to help getting posters up over a wider area.
Thank you all again for taking so much of your time to look for Tilly. Unfortunately we still have no confirmed sightings but as I mentioned, we have found dog hair (now 3 lots), 1 on North Leigh Lane (which extends from Farm Lane) and 2 other lots just off North Leigh Lane onto the footpath signposted to Wilcote. (Not that far from each other)
The vets have confirmed that the hair is dog hair and they have compared to Tilly’s hair on her brush and think that it may well be hers. (We can’t be 100% certain)
So we know that the last sighting was at the end of the field which is opposite the Woodman Pub, with the hair sightings, we have had to assume the rest of the route (I hope that we are right) but as I have said, we have HAD TO ASSUME as no one has seen her since Saturday. If you do see food, water and clothes at the dog hair sightings, please leave it there and could I ask that your dogs don’t eat the food please.
I haven’t left food in the field where she was last sighted, there is no point. There are horses in that field, they will eat it and I don’t think she will go back to somewhere where she was scared and frightened.
If you do see her, and let’s pray that we do, please ring either myself or my husband Simon so that we can approach her. My number (Vicky) 079060 73673, Simon 07977 049267. I have been advised that if she is in hiding, we need to be very quiet and approach her carefully. She has always been a very nervous dog!
Lastly I really appreciate all the help and support, I’m sorry if I cannot answer all your messages, but I am inundated with messages and at the same time, I am trying to find Tilly!
Thank you everyone, you are all truly AMAZING!

Sian Jones has been out with her scope looking for Tilly. Fingers crossed for a sighting soon
Live right next to New Yatt Business Park. Have been out for 2 hours looking and there were other people looking too. No luck. Can go out at dusk and throughout the evening and early morning to check. How about a familiar person camping overnight close to the spot where the hairs were found? Tilly is likely to p/u their scent and find them by herself.

Tilly's owner has been able to get a lot of posters up already, around New Yatt, the Business Park & North Leigh, if anyone in the area is able to help by getting some posters up along footpaths & bridleways in area that would be a great help as sightings are really needed, if you can help, please let Tilly's family know where you are covering so that they know where has been covered, thank you x

Update from owner x "These are only poss sightings, we cant be sure as one was from a 4yr old and the other from an old couple. But we did find 2 lots of Tillys hair (well I'm convinced it's her hair). It's very peaceful down there which is what she would want. I have left one of my dirty t shirts and water there. If anyone goes down there, please dont shout out her name, I dont want to scare her. I know everyone is trying to help and I am eternally grateful!"

Update from owner x "a lady has just called me to say that a little dog was spotted on a lane near New Yatt estate yesterday afternoon. It was by a 4year old walking with her dad and her own dog. When she approached her, the small dog ran away, so it may well be Tilly. I have to make some calls and then I am heading over to New Yatt"
Tilly is still missing, local helpers have been incredibly in their support & there was a good number of people out searching all day yesterday x
