I have kept my ear to the ground down here and haven't heard anything, i live 10 mins from crowhurst and have not seen any news dogs like Jess in the area! I am really shocked about the CCTV footage! Did anyone check out Devils Dyke? Unfortunately i have not been able to go up that way as i am quite busy at the mo, trying to plan a wedding, but as soon as things quiten down i could give it a try?! Has Nick heard anything? Or been back down this way?? I hope Jess is found soon. Jake 21.1.05 xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Any news on Jess ?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I can't believe nothing has come from the cctv footage?????? This seems very strange! I think i might speak to Dee and then call the hotel and find out if the girl looked at this footage and what she saw??? If not i will ask if i or someone else can have the tape to look at??? Another place to look for hare coasers - is towards Brighton, i think they call it Devils Dyke?? A big bowl to some others, loads take place there!!! I cannot believe this dog has just disappeared!! Seems very odd!!! I hope Jess is home soon!!! Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Still no news of Jess? I live in the Gravesend area and have put up posters in my local office, which serves members of the public, there has been some local coverage, I noticed in the freebie Kent Messenger a write up about Jess, I believe in the past hare corse racing used to take place on Cliffe Marshes which is near Gravesend, but has switched to Tilbury in Essex, this may be worthwhile checking out.

No news about the CCTV yet. I was speaking to a local policeman in cambridge, he seems to think that because JESS was a trained gundog, the traveling community have started to use stolen gundogs to flush out hares from cover, so that they can set there coursing dogs on to them. I wonder if the police check any dogs that they find when they approace illegal hare coursers? probabley not, they are far to busy catching speeding motorists.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi I'm doing The Rutland Dog Day on Sep 25th if you want me to hand out posters e mail me nickspea@aol.com and I'll send you my address to post them to. I would normally print them for you but my printer is out of action, though of course I hope Jess is home before then. take Care Nikki (see Jesters page) xx Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I will continue to ask around my area as there were lots of days between the theft and the dumping of things at Gravesend, so it is possible that Jess might still be Surrey way rather than Gravesend. Well done the lady at the Travel Lodge for being prepared to help. There are so many good people out there.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Great, if Jess is local then the Reporter should reach a good number of people who may have seen her. Thank you very very much to the lovely receptionist at the Travel Inn who offered to help us by going through the entire 24 hours of the tape in her own time to see if anything useful is on it. It will obviously take some time but as soon as we have news I'll be updating.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Altough Jess has not been located yet, i would like to thank everybody for all thier help. its now been three weeks but i have not given up hope yet. The police were not interested in any possible CCT footage from the hotel car park, nor did they think it was worth looking for finger prints on any off the stuff found in the car park. It was found on tuesday morning and had only been ther a few hours.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Ok, been following link all week, has anyone contacted the hotel yet? have we heard anything, i saw that the labrodor is now back, could these two be related????? I have keeping my ear to the ground and asking about but no one has seen anything, the other thing i was thinking of, was if the things were dumped in the hotel car park, did the police get them to finger print? and is there any camera's on the highways or on pubs located near by, sometimes they point on the road????? If anyone wants me to do anything, please pm me and i will try my best, but i can only log in when i get a comp free at work! SORRY XXLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Just catching up - it's too late for me to call owner nick now and i can't make calls during the day at the mo - but if someone can establish if we can visit, i am local and can go view CCTV if required... happy to do so. Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Establishments often wipe their tapes after a few days, so someone local should check the hotel CCTV before the opportunity is missed.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I haven't been to the RSPCA in S Godstone - or Westerham, Limpsfield - and into Surrey - but it looks like they went the other way - and also that place above theA22 - the trouble is, you cannot be sure they did not put her out,so I keep asking. The owner says she's gorgeous - aren't they all, she doesn't bark or whine and is just a lovely dog - so they may have kept her - I am going to concentrate around the A25 and onto the motorway I think. Have checked with local dog wardens this morning - is there one for Caterham? - I'd bettere check.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Wow, its all been happening here, sorry i haven't been on, i cannot write passwords on my work comp, so cannot use this one all the time. Anyway enough about that, I will speak to my older Bro, who knows Dartford (nr Gravesend) and will get him to ask about! I was also thinking about the CCTV footage, if someone goes to the hotel, i am sure they would help, it seems very strange that they wouldn't also if you tell them its about the dog, i am sure it would be ok. If you want me to call them i can?! Marian, is there any areas left that haven't been done?? Anything you want me to? SarahLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

When appealing to the hotel's better nature, don't forget that they won't want people to think that their car park is rife with crime - not good when all your customers have cars. The alternative, of course, is for the police to pay them a call and they wouldn't want that either. If all that fails, let me know and I'll see if the PRs at Whitbread appreciate the benefits of good community relations.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Marian I expect you're probably right about police being needed to check hotel CCTV and if they're being no help that's a shame as that could be one of the best leads. What about appealing to the hotel's better nature (0870 990 6352) or maybe the owner trying through Gravesend police station as that's where the articles were found (01474 331055). I'm not confident about going out putting up posters on my own but I have sent the poster link to the main vets in the area asking them to put it on their noticeboard and to the main groomers for their window.

Right I've had a think about this. The Travel Inn is on the A2, Hevercourt Road - now the car was stolen from Surrey - so the thieves have come round the M25 via the dartford tunnel junction and down the A2 - I thought originally that would mean they were going to Essex/South London - but the Travel Inn is on the wrong side of the road for that - they were heading towards Gravesend and Medway towards the coast. Now there is a dodgy gypsy area in Denton, Gravesend, and some travelling gypsies in the area too. I think we need to poster wildly in the Gravesend town area and down towards the ME postcode as well as DA area. Stray kennels to contact are Viking Oak, at Wrotham Heath (Brian Milligan uses them - can we alert him asap?), and Jasmil at Upchurch, Sittingbourne. Now of course, there is the whole of the M25 area between Surrey and Dartford to also cover... that's a hell of a lot of dog wardens... but as Jess is microchipped I'd be surprised if she has been picked up by the authorities in between... I'd think she's more likely been sold off somewhere or is still with them. This is a huge area to cover, we need as many helpers making calls and sending posters all over the place asap.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Do you need the police to get a hotel to check its CCTV, becauase, having spoken to the owner, it would seem they are not very interested in this theft - AND it involved a car and contents - which is usually taken more seriously than a dog.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi Jester please put posters up-you never know! I do not know the date they were found as onlu had e mail from owner.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Its right on the A2 but in the opposite direction from Surrey, and past routes to London/Essex so possibly they were heading away and down towards Kent?Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Jayne just picked up your message - it's Singlewell, which is near Northfleet/Ifield area of Gravesend, right on the A2 - if that's the case then I'd be willing to bet the theives headed right on up the A2 and over the water to Essex... or South London. Might be worth covering those areas too? Dee xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Do you know what day the belongings were found at the Travel Inn? Was it the day the dog went missing or more recently? Is the hotel displaying a poster as its customers may have seen something - I can send them one if necessary. Just wondering what other help the travel inn can give, i.e. CCTV footage from the car park may pick up if the same car dumped the belongings, if Jess was in car at the time, if she was put out here etc... Live in Gravesend and will keep my eyes peeled for my namesake! JessLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Unless poor little Jess is still sporting a buster collar, this is not the most useful pic to be on a poster. If the owners really don't have another one, could the copy on the poster indicate that she won't be appearing in it now !!Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

And, we were able to make a bit of extra space by removing Molly's posters - great!! - but still upsetting to see Jake still there and missing.

We have put posters up at Hever, Hever Road, Haxted, Lingfield, Crowhurst, Tandridge and the Mormon Temple. Hever Road and the Mormon Temple were very full - we had a job finding a space!!! I ran out of drawing pins, so will carry on next week. The Crowhurst fete is next Saturday, and posters have been put up at the village Hall. We spoke to several people in Crowhurst and were surprised that they had not heard about this theft. A lady who works at a vets in Lingfield took some posters. We also took posters to livery yards in the area. I am going to try to contact the owner tomorrow. Dee ,do you know the car - some friends of mine have been watching a 4 wheel behaving suspiciously this last week.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

This is because the dog was put on at the original date and was lost on 2nd page so I put date on to get it to the front page where it has now been noticed. If you don't mind crossing it out. Thanks.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Sorry to keep going on, but the poster still says missing since 31/8 - I am crossing this out and putting in 22/8 - it could confuse someone who might have taken her inLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Yes, my Suzy was stolen with a car - it was most unusual, that they kept her. My thief usually put any dogs out that were in the cars he took. We are just off to poster - I will give details of where we go later.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi, a friend recently had her car stolen from her drive in dormansland with her 2 dogs in. They were dumped in a lane near Marsh Green very soon after. If this is the same people they may have done the same again! I will keep a close lookout when out as I am local! Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

We will do the Swan. Do you know if Jess has been missing since 22/8 - presumably thepolice must be involved as the car was stolen - I still feel that car theft will be further over into Surrey - round here is more straight dog theft. I will do Lingfield and Felbridge tomorrowLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Hi Dee, I was thinking about within the estates, the leisure centre, and the library, also the shops. New Addington is rife with not so nice disareables, also i will take a look down a lane tomorrow where cars are often dumped and torched, see if theres anything unusual about. Also did anyone speak to Hazel about the Pub up the road from Hever Road, in Edenbridge? I think thats a good pub to poster near! I will take some posters out with me when i'm doggie walking. Fancy a trip up Limpsfield Chart?? Let me know? Sarah xLast edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

Ok the Crowhurst fate is at the Village Hall, i think maybe some trees or sometimes they have a notice board outside which people often look at, would be a good spot. Has anyone done Hever Lane, or if Hazel is about she knows the name of a pub up the road which is a good place to maybe poster (sorry can't remember off the top of my head) Hope this helps.

Also, the poster in the pet shop said that Jess was stolen on 22/8 - that's coming up for 2 weeks - I think we all need to check the rescue centres.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18

I missed this one and have just seen a poster in the pet shop in Edenbridge - but no piccy - so I will change it round and put up some more around town. Also, I can do Tandridge - what about further over into Surrey - is Hazel still in touch? If they wanted the car, they could have put Jess out locally - has the Tandridge dog warden been contacted - also, Reigate - call if you need a physical presence Dee!!

Yes the 4x4 was taken with Jess in the back. I'm afraid offhand I can't remember the exact make - but it's the sort that a certain community would love to own - that being the case I doubt it will be recovered and will either be in bits now or will have a new numberplate.Last edited: 2010-05-11 02:17:18
