Please check in our Found section:-
Just a quick update the Nottingham westie. The dog warden has confirmed with me that he isn’t Patrick and they have now managed to contact his owner.
Thank you LouiseB. Although I know probably unlikely as Patrick’s chip is up to date, at this stage we aren’t ruling anyone out so I will find out more and update this page. I really appreciate you thinking of Patrick xx
Please have a look at a found Westie on dog lost site 181238. Wishing Patrick home to you. LouiseB xx
Just to confirm the westie found in Plymouth was reunited yesterday with their owner. Pleased he’s been reunited but sad it wasn’t Patrick. Thank you Tuffi
TO CHECK...found Plymouth male WHWT Not sure if age right though as post says.... Can anyone help, I've found a white westie type dog . Quite old I think found wandering aimlessly, no collar or details. I can't seem to get through to any advice service. He seems quite deaf, quite a few warts. (there is no photo)
Now with WOODLANDS VETS 01752 700600

Update 16/12 - the search for Patrick continues, supported by DL, DSAR and LDRS volunteers. Postering campaign over ever increasing radius, social media shares and daily checks of found dog sites, with dogs posted to Patricks page also being followed up and ruled out by his family and volunteers. You can support Patricks family by sharing from his page https://www.facebook.com/patrickmissingtauntonta2

Update 12/12 - Male Westie (180816) confirmed not to be Patrick after discussion with Camden Dog warden and local DL co-ordinator. Thanks to those that messaged Patricks page with details of this dog though

Update 10/12 - As communicated via Patricks page - there has not been single sighting of Patrick since the day he went missing from home, or indeed any leads.

Postering continues across an ever widening area, as well a social media coverage nationally. It is possible that someone picked Patrick up and has not reported him or taken him for a chip scan, we hope to gain further coverage from local press to connect with more people who may not be on social media or see posters. Several Westies reported found nationally, all of which have been followed up, however sadly none have been Patrick so far. The search for Patrick very much remains active however

Update 26/11 - extensive search carried out again of home and surrounding fields. Further drone flights also carried out Friday 25/11. Many thanks to the amazing Mark Cox Joanne Iddon and her search dog Nimble, and also to the family and friends who gathered this afternoon to perform a detailed search of the area.
We are now as confident as we can be that Patrick is not in the immediate area around his home, although DSAR remote live cameras continue to monitor the areas of interest around his home location, as indicated by search dogs Friia and Nimble, just in case he is trying to make his way home.
In the meantime, continued support from vols in postering and sharing from Patricks page (below in comments) remains hugely helpful as we keep all search options open

Thermal drone and tracking dog deployed to home and surrounding fields, remote cams set up, family given scenting advice. No sightings as yet, focus has been on searching farm and scenting to offer this dog a safe route back home. Since he has been out since Friday night, we would ask that sightings are called in, not posted on social media and that he is not approached, called or chased please. Thanks so much for your support everyone
