I have emailed Bolton News and just followed up with a phone call. They will put something on their Facebook page, hopefully today, and also something small will go in the paper, hopefully tomorrow. Fingers crossed it brings some news. Thank you to Maxine at Bolton News for helping xx
PLEASE HELP! Sorry to read this. Maybe Fred has sought refuge in a park or fields, and is hiding in bushes or behind trees. Could a Tracker dog help here, if someone
happens to own one in the area, if given Fred`s scent? Or/and a search party? Paws, and fingers xd.Last edited: 2018-11-19 08:52:18 by janiejewel1649

We have had a report of a possible accident with may have involved Fred. We know a dog was hit by a car on Wednesday 14.11.18, and thankfully is ok, but someone thinks they saw an accident also on Tuesday 13.11.18, which is the night Fred went missing. IF YOU ARE IN THIS AREA AND HAVE CCTV OR YOU WERE DRIVING AND HAVE A DASH CAM, PLEASE CAN YOU CHECK IT FOR US. It was between 6-7pm so it would have been busy, somebody else must have seen something. Please contact the number on the poster or you can contact DogLost in the strictest if confidence. Thank you for reading.... please SHARE, his owner is absolutely distraught 💔
