There are concerns that a rumour has arisen saying the warden has said Riva is home. This may have arisen from a similar looking dog having been found in nearby Swanage that was reunited. This is NOT the case, Riva is still missing. I have replaced her poster photo and added a comment to reflect this. I have bumped her page to ensure everyone knows she is still very much missing.
Posters have been removed by the council as were becoming damaged so need replacing. Last edited: 2016-11-09 07:58:46 by Gnasher - Area Co-ordinator, East Dorset

I am on holiday near the area Riva went missing from so will certainly keep an eye out for her this week. Hoping she will be found safe soon x

The school Riva was tracked to backs onto farmers fields adjacent to the A351 which leads past Stoborough and ultimately to Corfe Castle. Those fields also are flanked by the River Frome which runs directly down to Wareham town centre. I have today popped flyers though all neighbouring properties which have any view over the fields in hope they may bring some news.
There have been no known confirmed sightings of her since Thursday afternoon.

A tracker dog was deployed last yesterday who tracked a one way trail from Monmouth Street accross the common and up to Purbeck school / sports centre where tracking had to ceased as dogs not permitted on the grounds. I have suggested postering nearby Stoborough

Area changed to SW . No news overnight sadly so will take some posters over and help search today.
Wardens , police and local vets all aware.
A report has come in this morning from workmen who saw Riva at around 1.30pm yesterday turning left into Monmouth road towards the hospital which I believe is near the West town wall

No news this evening, though there have been several sightings today as you say Konner. Riva's family gave been advised to leave a scent item in a safe place outside this evening as it is believed she had returned to the house at some point today, which is a good sign. Hoping for good news in the morning, if not I am available to help x
BH15 is only 15 mins away..she has been spotted today but is very nervous..so hopeing she will make her way back home when quiet..have shared to all my friends in wareham..and have told the owner to ring me anytime if needed,and if not back by tomorrow will go over again with posters..
