Thank you so much Patlucky for the update, it is much appreciated.
I do hope they were his footprints & fingers crossed that the sighting was him.
Fingers crossed this beautiful boy will be found & reunited with his family x
Thank you Patlucky xx
Kinsally Kahn is still missing but some large prints have been found
So that is being monitored
Plus there was a sighting thought to be him but who knows
Will post again here for you
Is there any news on Kahn? Have there been any confirmed sightings?
I thought about him a lot in all that snow & wondered if there were any footprints found? I just can’t believe it’s been nearly 5 months since he went missing & feel so sad that he’s not been found yet. My heart goes out to his owners. I wish I could keep up with reading how the search is going for him but I don’tt have Facebook. Please post any new info. Fingers crossed he will appear & get back home with his family. Where ever you are Kahn I hope you are making your way home xxxLast edited: 2018-03-07 21:31:49 by Kinsally

The dog in Hartlepool was a Caucasian Shepherd! Last edited: 2018-01-22 21:19:44 by ClaireC - Area Volunteer, Buckinghamshire
OMG I have just seen the post below that Allison has shared. I've looked and hope it isn't Kahn.
This dog was left tied up 8n Hartlepool and shot by police. Please check incase someone had pick up Kahn and taken him up north.
Thank you Patlucky. Just wish there was some positive news on Kahn. I miss being able to keep up with news on searches but totally understand if the privacy settings had to be changed.
Keeping everything crossed for good news on Kahn x

Here's the facebook link
There has been a Leonberger ? Dog found in Portsmouth area that I’ve just seen on Facebook today it’s been taken to Portsmouth Dog Pound. Might be worth a look
Yes Kinsally I did ask
The FB page has now been made private
Hence you cannot see it so you would have to join
Nothing much to report I am afraid
Patlucky I do not have Facebook. At one time I could view the page about Kahn & keep up with news because I could click on the Facebook link & it would be visible to read but now to do this you have to log in so the privacy settings must of changed.
Some Facebook pages are open to the public to view & some are not. That was why I asked if someone could update me which hypnochick has kindly done.

Thank you hypnochick for updating me. I appreciate that. Just so sorry there is no further news on Kahn & hoping that he will show himself & be back home soon with his family.
Good luck with the searches & yes never loose hope xxxLast edited: 2018-01-06 17:03:17 by Kinsally
Thank you for your well wishes.
Kinsally, there is no news at the moment, I am arranging searches and we're staying hopeful
Kinsally why can you not read post on Facebook?
Is there any news on Kahn? I wish I could still read the posts on Facebook.
Please can someone on Facebook update with any news & if the search is still further afield.
I would really appreciate it to know.
Constantly thinking of Kahn xxx
Thinking of Kahn & his family at Christmas time.
I don’t have Facebook but had been able to look on there constantly as it was open to viewing & i could keep up with any news on the search for Kahn but now you have to log in so i unfortunately i can’t see anymore. Please can this page be kept updated with any news as I know how hard his owner is trying to find him. I hope & pray that Kahn will be home soon with his family. He’s in my thoughts so much.
Please let there be the good news soon that so many of us are waiting to hear.
Wishing so much for this. Stay safe Kahn & be found please sweetheart xxx
Wishing you every success in finding Kahn, received your email with attached poster have printed and put on display at my veterinary practice, unfortunately not local to you. Thought maybe with people traveling over Christmas it may be helpful.Good luck in your search.

Owners are having hoax calls..but also local sightings....They will be emailing through so we can send out further alerts.
I have shared Kahn again on Essex sites
Fingers crossed
Unfortunately, Kahn is still missing. No sightings now in 2weeks, so could quite easily have moved out of the area. Please everyone keep a lookout. Many thanks
i haven't seen him but im sure if I do I let you know
Owners are desperate to get Kahn home
So PLEASE keep sharing
This has been shared again today in Kent on several different sites, maybe someone will have seen him

Latest updates can be found on Kahn's fb page - very proactive and organised - https://www.facebook.com/groups/1724872031155599/
Any sightings
Where was he seen last please

Sorry guys but after 2 prank calls at pub turning out times over the weekend Im going to have to revert back to normal times with the RSPCA Lost and Found phone. I have your number on hand if I hear anything at all. Good Luck xLast edited: 2017-10-23 18:48:17 by Sue - PetSearchSouthEast
Has he been put on Drone SAR for lost dogs UK please?
Sounds like lots of expert help...assume Jenny and tiga (www.k9tracker.co.uk) have been contacted?
Update on FB:-
The situation so far is that Kahn is still missing.
Stewart is very appreciative of everyones help and support but he cannot reply to comments when he is out 24/7 looking for Kahn.
Thank you so much to everyone who turned out yesterday in huge numbers at the Marina and I gather a team from Tillys Angels co ordinated this after a meeting with Stewart the day before.. Can anyone confirm if this area and beyond has now been postered and 'searched'?
There have been a few possible sightings since Kahn went missing but also a number have been ruled out - the sighting of a red flashing light by a water bowl in a horse field was actually a red light flashing on the electric fence.
So much has gone on behind the scenes including all night watches with quite a range of hi tech night vision equipment and if anyone else has access to any more and is available for all night watches then please offer. Riders on horseback have been out, Stewart has been up in a helicopter and I believe the RNLI are going to be doing a training exercise along the river. Network Rail have been informed and a report made.
Although we are not ruling out the Brays Lane area it is possible that from the overload of activity after the sighting was reported that Kahn has moved on.
We are keeping all options open and quite simply an area with up to maybe an 8 mile radius of Hockley needs postering and keeping an eye out for Kahn.
If anyone is walking their dogs please take some posters and put them up enroute.
Please respect farmers land when out and about.
So much is being done and if Stewart were to report all the things being done - then nothing would be done. His phone is on constant charge in his pocket but even that is not keeping it charged up.
So to move forward - we need to find Kahn!
If you live within 8 miles of Hockley - poster your area.
If you live within 8 miles of Hockley and know your local footpaths - walk them keeping an eye out.
There is no point asking where to search as I say anywhere within the 8 mile radius is an option.
If you have access to anymore night vision equipment and are willing to do night watches contact Stuart.
......but above all - if you spot Kahn call Stuart by phone on 07958470920 with an exact location immediately.
Stuart, Sharon and the whole family very much appreciate everyones help in getting their much loved Kahn home safley.
Message on twitter:- Spoke to someone in Ashingdon park today. They said he went missing there? Park is surrounded by fields. Further away than Trinity wood Rd
