New information on FB

The information that I’m about to tell you has played on my conscience since I received it on Sunday. You may understand my Monday Mornings post after you read what I’m about to tell you...
A very proactive group member was filling her car with fuel on Sunday in Cumbria, her vehicle like many others has the Missing Ruby and Beetle posters on the windows. A man approached her looking at the posters and asked her if these were the 2 Border Terriers that the travelling community was talking about, she replied with maybe, he told her to bombard Wales with leaflets and posters, she asked him if he knew something and he turned as he walked off and told her to BOMBARD Wales with the leaflets..
We still don’t have a huge following in Wales, I have sent out some leaflets to a few who asked after Monday’s gentle post but I think this Man may know something, he didn’t need to approach this lady or even talk about Ruby and Beetle but he did...
I feel stuck between a rock and a hard place for what to do for the best, I just want to find my little dogs and without this groups help I can’t...
we need their profile spread throughout the Wales and the country..
No repercussions, just tell us you found them...
There are some walks planned to highlight these two on March 10th - see events page on their group
Pontefract;Bamburgh;Portobello Beach;Gravesend - and others may be added too

A comment on the article below says: I saw two border terriers just like these running down a road in West Sussex on January 14 . I notified Chcichester District council. They probably aren't the same dogs but you never know

Missing 33 Days... WE NEED TO FIND THEM !!
I have been up since 6.30am and spent nearly over an hour answering messages, sending emails and shouting at kids to get ready for school, and I forgot I hadn’t wrote this mornings update...
I spent yesterday talking with magazines about Ruby and Beetle having been stolen and placing ads in classifieds. 🤞
Reaching out to those who may not be on Social Media is the reason behind this.
I also answered lots of calls from people having spotted two Border Terriers running or with people, describing them to me etc..
Ruby & Beetle were the same size , no difference in height, equally matched, very similar. My good friends struggled to tell them apart..
Thank you and again my PLEA AND REQUEST...
Thankyou.. 👌👍

They are in the Daily Record today
The reward for their return has been raised,please share their new poster from their FaceBook group in the hopes this gets them home
I have just read the Southern Reporter article too .
SURELY the local Police should be investigating this account of the 'unusual gentleman'?
They need to be asking if There is any cctv at the Visitor Centre etc .
Plz Ask the police for a CRN ( Crime reference number ) so that an Officer will be assigned to investigate the Suspected theft . Article reads:
There were reports of a really unusual gentleman on the day of the disappearance at Harestanes visitor centre – we just live along from there – and this lady sent me a message to say he made them feel very uncomfortable by making a big fuss of their dogs. The timings would link in with that.

I did report Ruby and Beetle as stolen to the Police, they weren’t very supportive.
Any advice from others..?

Just read the article mentioned below, can Ruby & Beetle be reported stolen, given what the local lady said about the guy making a fuss of her dogs and making her feel uncomfortable.
Also an interview on Radio Borders
Excellent publicity for them in The Southern Reporter
Ruby and Beetle have their own group now on FaceBook
just sharing from kent and sussex group
