Thank you sydneys mum and pat88 but both not Wilbur. We still have no idea what's happened to him. Still hoping he's out there some where .
If you look closely - this boy has a white mark on his head.
Please check out

There is a blue roan boy for sale on www.donedeal.ie with a white bit on his head. Fur is longer so hard to tell but may be worth a look.
Sadly he is still missing. No sightings at all.
Is there any news on Wilbur been found yet?
Thank you I also rang vet. Yes he is chipped and all been notified. The residence of village are aware, there are posters in the village shop and club house.
Thanks Sarah
Please ignore previous comment. Checked with vets and dog in Billingshurst is a chocolate roan and definitely not Wilbur.
Sarah, can you confirm please that Wilbur's chip details are up-to-date and that the chip company has been notified. Thanks x
Have Wilbur's chip details definitely been updated since his owners moved? Evidently a spaniel has been found in Billingshurst and taken to Pet Doctors. The dog is chipped. I'm not sure the colouring is right, but photos can be deceptive.

There is a page dedicated to him now https://www.facebook.com/groups/1555398084532232/ where if you scroll down there is a map of Durrants Retirement Village and surround areas.
Doesn't appear to be any up-to-date google images of the retirement village. Are there any lakes or ponds near where he went missing and have these been checked? Are all the other residents of the village aware - maybe there's an email list for all residents?

Hi Sarah still sharing on Twitter. Has Faygate Train Station had a poster and been asked to look out for Wilbur ? Just in case.

Dog sighting near leatherhead looks like it wasn't Wilbur so now been missing 7 days with out a sighting. £500 reward. Again thanks to every one for your help. Sarah
Have just had a message from someone that lives on Young Street and owns a very similar looking dog to Wilbur. I have shown the dogs picture to both the people that saw the dog yesterday and they think that it could have been the local dog they saw. I've just spoken to Wilbur's owners, so they are aware. So sorry, but think in this instance, sighting was not Wilbur :(

Possible sighting of Wilbur this morning in Norbury Park, Leatherhead. This posted by a friend earlier:

*** Dog Running Loose *** at Young Street car park this morning (Monday 17th July). Grey marl Spaniel - very shy ran from the car park across the road in a Leatherhead direction. Fortunately, traffic stopped. Dog Warden alerted in case someone is missing it.

I've since spoken to her and showed her a picture of Wilbur and she thinks it could be, although dog was moving fast, so she didn't get a chance to see if the dog was wearing a collar. She did say that the dog looked well kept, and recently trimmed. Dog was very scared and running from everyone.
I have spoken to Wilbur's owner and suggested they contact Mole Valley Dog Warden. Will ask Admin to put out extra alerts near to where the dog was seen, on the off chance it might be. Fingers crossed.
Thank you every body for your comments and advice. We have searched and put up posters. Have just added a £500 reward and putting up new posters. All help gratefully received.
Have you checked under bushes & hedges also those of neighbours Spaniels are very prone to getting stuck & they will go silent even if they hear their name being called.
This poor dog has now been missing since Monday with no sightings. Can anyone walking their dogs search in that area please.
Try contacting www.k9tracker.co.uk, she will give good advice even if she can't come and track
