UPDATES (from Facebook):
From Missing Dogs Perthshire (drone footage available via Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/missingdogsperthshire/

"Another day out with the drone and sadly no sighting of Tilly, there are some pretty major islands in the Tay, although water levels suggest these were probably covered on Sunday night , they need to be discounted from the search so time was taken flying each island to rule them out. this is just a short clip of one of the islands"

and from Missing Pets, Perth and Kinross Scotland (https://www.facebook.com/MissingPetsInPerthAndKinross/):

"***TILLY UPDATE, 26/02/2020***

Morning everyone, I’m sorry for not doing an update last night but things were very busy with us helping other missing pets too ❤️
Sadly there is still no news on sweet Tilly. Our volunteers have been out helping since the night Tilly went missing and continue to do so. We have been keeping track of all areas searched and the river Tay from Birnam down to Luncarty has been searched repeatedly but it’s still a good idea that these areas keep getting checked. Our equipment along with our volunteers is being used too to check parts of the banking, especially parts that are difficult to access.
We are lucky to have gillies helping and providing valuable knowledge of the river along with checking their stretches of the river. Due to the height of the water they haven’t been out on their boats but as long as the water levels continue to drop they will be able to go out soon and check other parts of the river banking.
Even with the water levels dropping, please do be careful when searching and let us and someone else know too where you are going to be searching for Tilly.
On the behalf of Tilly’s family, thank you everyone for all the continued help and support you are giving them during this difficult time ❤️"

Mary ..thanks fir your very kind offer. Could I suggest texting or phoning one of the numbers listed above as your comment may be missed.
I would like to help with the search for Tilly. I could walk my dog in Dunkeld/Birnam tomorrow. Can you suggest the best route?

Tilly is already shared on the sites I normally use, Dotty's Army Scotland, Scottish Lost Found Dogs and Harveys Army Scotland facebook pages; I have added the Dog Lost link to each. I am praying that Tilly is found and reunited xLast edited: 2020-02-24 17:43:30 by Jenkins-Admin for Found Dogs

Update from Missing Dogs Perthshire (10.15am 24/2):
"We have created a poster of Tilly with our DogLost colleagues and ask that you please share. If all searchers in the Birnam area please keep the poster to hand on your phone it’s easier to share to other searchers/walkers. Many thanks to all our searchers who are giving us feedback on their searches and please take care and search in pairs where possible. There is no news as yet. Tilly used to be a Game-Keeper’s dog and was a good swimmer so we hope that was on her side xx Many thanks for your continued help searching - we are hoping to get our thermal drone up once there is a break in the weather xx"
Tilly is already in Border Terriers Lost & Found and most of the BT groups on FB and is getting many many shares.Just hope she is found soon
