A drone was out yesterday & searched the area & cliffs. Sadly Rufus not found.
DogLostFergal - Area Volunteer - Cornwall
Were there any areas he could have holed up in, perhaps the drone footage might help. Given he was spooked by a bang, have there been any more that might be keeping him in hiding? Don't know area, so thinking upturned boats, beneath caravan/challet, vegetation, hedgerow fencing? One lost locally stayed hidden for 5 days at the spot he was lost, even with owner going back every day. Hope you get a sighting soon.

Owners & friends have been searching the area again today.
There are cliffs around & they have been advised that at low tide they may be able to check on the beach in case he has gone off the cliff & also scan the cliffside with binoculars.
