From Jack's owner ......As I was posting yesterday about the anniversary of Jack going missing, I was waiting for a reply from a potential sighting. I'm happy to say, the lady just confirmed, that the dog looked like Jack a lot (as much as one can tell from ~100 meters). The sighting was on the first kink of Grunty Fen Rd, after you leave Witchford.

From Jack's owner..... It's a year to the day Jack decided that chasing muntjacs and rabbits is more fun. She hasn't been seen for over 4 months now. I haven't given up on finding her alive, but common sense means she could as well be dead.
Now Spring is here, and more farmers and dog walkers are out and about, if anyone happens to find her, regardless of her condition, I would like to know.
Thank you.
imccartney
Thank you, I hope it will jog people's memories, too.

really hope the news story brings some more sightings. Come on Jack, show yourself, so you can get home and snug. x

Fingers crossed for you!
imccartney
Thank you very much. Messaged the poster, waiting for reply.
My gut feeling is that it isn't Jack, but she has been missing so long, her looks will have changed a lot.

Hi Blinky000, I checked, it's not Jack unfortunately. This dog was already claimed by her owner. Thank you so much for keeping an eye out for Jack! X
blinky000

Another possible sighting of Jack on 1.11.7
imccartney
Similar looking dog (lady said a bit lighter in colour) seen this morning around 10:45, in a field just to the south of the bridge crossing Great Ouse, on Twenty Pence Road.

@Skywalker99 I spoke to Ray just yesterday. I need to get her to come to one particular place, before anyone starts trying to catch her. I've been laying stink trails and moved the trail cameras to the new sighting places, but nothing yet.
@GeorgyPorgy I did post on quite a few groups in the wider Cambridgeshire and Norfolk area, before I managed to narrow her whereabouts down to the west of Ely. If she is reluctant to cross bridges (it seems that way), then the furthest she would go is Mepal.
Skywalker99
Have owners been in contact with ray Dedicoat (www.raydedicoat.com) for advice on how to trap her?
Georgy Porgy
Just wondered if it might help to resend alerts as been a while since last done. Don't know if potential sighting area in different postcode?
DogLostHelen - Regional Co-ordinator East Anglia.
2 potential sightings of Jack this last Sunday (17th)., one in Grunty Fen in the morning, the other near the river in Aldreth, both sightings were of a very thin-looking dog x
Georgy Porgy
Are their any updates on this one?
Georgy Porgy
Keeping everything crossed ! Good luck x

We have eventually tracked Jack to a location and are ready to trap her and bring her home. The location will be kept secret for obvious reasons however if anyone is able to help with her capture and can spare some time trap watching in shifts can you please contact me . Volunteers are needed in the Ely area please x

Hoppe a srearch will bring some news of Jack`s whereabouts. Sadly an too far away to help/ Paws, and fingers xd.
Captain
Can anyone local help please? ...
Appeal made on Jack's Facebook page for help with postering the area where she went missing ...
"Hi Everyone,
This map and area where the blue line outlines, is where Jack went missing from. It is extremely rural and there are many places she could find to hide away with the River being a guaranteed water source.

We desperately need some local people who would be willing to help poster the area and the any areas surrounding here within 10 miles.
Obviously due to Jack having been missing over 2 months now, time is very much of the essence and we need to get posters and awareness up FAST so would appreciate as much local help as possible to get this girl safe.

If you are able to help please comment below or leave a message on the group.
Thank you so much in advance :)"

Possible sighting of Jack in Beck Row a few days ago.
Page bumped up because of this sighting x
imccartney
Sorry, forgot to add, I've spoken to the local dog warden and they can provide a trap. I would like to make sure it is her, before I contact them to ask for it.
imccartney
I have 3 trail cameras set up in the area and leave dry food scattered in the area, as well as some wet food in front of the cameras. I've also been marking the territory with my wee.
It was me who spotted a black dog/fox shape last night. Can't be sure because it was twilight and it was a good 80-90 meters away. Unless there is a black fox in this area, it's likely it was Jack. I moved one of the cameras closer to where I spotted it (her).
Mary
Imccartney. It would be agood idea to set up a feeding station near the possible sighting and make enquiries about a large trap.
imccartney
Possibly spotted last night at dusk, same area

There has been a potential sighting in the last week of Jack in a field north of Stretham.
imccartney
Hi, I'm Jack's owner. No news yet, but I'm waiting on someone to contact me about a black & tan dog found in Waterbeach.
I have spoken to farmers in the area, both to ask them to keep an eye out for her, as well as warn them. No-one said their livestock has been worried, so I assume that means she is either dead, or has been found by someone and kept, for whatever reason.
Or she might have moved into a different area.
I have contacted Ramblers and Birdwatching groups in Cambridgeshire, asking them to contact me if they spot anything.
PFK
Any news on this please?
colliebird
The dogs owner should advise all farmers in the area about this lost dog. If it sees sheep or other stock, it is liable to try and "work" them which could have a sad outcome! If push comes to shove, all dogs will swim so best to look on both sides of the river for her, just in case.
