I will request further E-mail alerts to go out to NR13.

I think it probably would be worthwhile. I have phoned the vets at Acle. Xxx

Would it be worth sending Alerts to NR13 area to cover Acle?

Poster in cars might help widen the search. Have you left posters at local schools or contacted taxi firms. Posters in post boxes might help get the word around at the sorting office.
DogLostHelen - Regional Co-ordinator East Anglia.
Posters need to go up further a field, is there anybody that can help?
If you can please print off a few posters and put up in the surrounding villages near Winterton x
DogLostHelen - Regional Co-ordinator East Anglia.
Thank you to everyone that came on the search for Rio today, I and the owners really appreciate it.
Sadly no sightings today of Rio, however we covered a lot of ground handing out flyers on the way.
We started from Horsey Gap and walked the dunes towards Winterton and then a few of us drove to Winterton and walked the woods where he was seen when he first went missing.
I postered a few of the villages on the way home.
Although no sightings we have spread the word further a field and hope that we will get some news of a sighting so we can act on it.
Thank you once again to everybody x

The last sightings were in Winterton, but he may well have moved on or been picked up. He could be anywhere. We are hoping he has stayed in the locality as people are very aware he is missing. Thank you xxxxxx

We are currently on holiday in the Hickling Area of Norfolk. Can you confirm where the last possible sightings were so we can look whilst out and about. Keeping everything crossed Rio is home safe soon x

For the safe return of Rio, or information leading to his return
Please help by checking your gardens, sheds, outbuildings etc. Places where he may be hiding.
Please ask neighbours who may not be on social media pages. Thank you Xxxx

Thank you to everybody who gave up their time to help search for Rio today, we decided to concentrate on the woods that he was seen to run towards when he went missing and this is close to where he was seen on the cricket pitch, the area is vast and we tried to cover as much as we could, sadly no sightings of Rio in this area. Winterton beach is so busy every day so I think he would have been seen if he was still in this area.
Most people we spoke to knew that he was missing.
I gave everybody on the search some laminated posters and flyers to put up further away as I feel we need posters up further a field now.
Thank you once again everybody x
Safka
Thank you to all who came today to look for Rio. And thank you to the many dog lovers whom we met who have been and will continue to look. But a very big thank you to Helen for organising the search and for all the million and one other things she does for lost dogs. Helen has been truly amazing with help and advice. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Sadly no sighting of Rio. Xxx

Thanks Andy, I will drop one off to you tomorrow x

Just returned from holiday in Winterton. Walked on the dunes this morning and last night. Ran along low road yesterday up to the church scanning the fields but no sign. When walking over fields at the weekend, game keepers son(?) said they had deer stalkers there this week. Presume they are from Burnley Hall so may be worth alerting them. Come home Rio.
Mark North
Hi Safka - Not sure if it will help but here are some local farm addresses you could write to..
BURNLEY HALL, EAST SOMERTON, SOMERTON, NR29 4DZ
MANOR FARM, MANOR FARM ROAD, EAST SOMERTON, SOMERTON, NR29 4DY
FORDS FARM, CRINKLE HILL, HORSEY, HORSEY, NR29 4EP
MADELEINES FARM HOUSE, MANOR FARM ROAD, EAST SOMERTON, SOMERTON, NR29 4DY
LOW FARM, SOMERTON ROAD, WINTERTON-ON-SEA, WINTERTON-ON-SEA, NR29 4AW
KNIGHTS FARM, HORSEY ROAD, WEST SOMERTON, SOMERTON, NR29 4DW
WHITE HOUSE FARM, THE STREET, WEST SOMERTON, SOMERTON, NR29 4EA
HOLMES FARM, HORSEY ROAD, WEST SOMERTON, SOMERTON, NR29 4DW

Safka
Thank you Mark North for taking the trouble to do that. We have posted on cars and letter boxes around Manor Farm road. We have no knowledge of local farmers. If any one could help alerting them or giving me names etc to contact I would be very grateful. Xxx
Mark North
I took a walk from Winterton today along Low Road and Manor Farm Road to East Somerton, then up the Holmes Road across the marshes and back down to Winterton across the dunes. Unfortunately, I had no sighting of Rio despite spending much of my time scanning the fields. I did speak to a farmer at the farm buildings at Winterton Holmes and he was totally unaware that there was a missing dog. So, I'm wondering whether all the local farms have been informed. Isn't it likely that Rio may use a farm outbuilding for shelter? So sorry that I was unable to find her. Hope she's found soon.

Sadly no luck with the drone search :( I have suggested owners contact BBC Radio Norfolk and see if Matthew Gudgin will put out an announcement this afternoon.
Safka
There is a gentleman with a drone coming this morning at 10.30. If anyone could be there to help it would be most appreciated. LYn.
DogLostXenas Mum - Area Volunteer, Norfolk
I put posters up in Stalham at the Vets, Petshop - the lady lives in Hemsby, and Truly Local.
Kathy
Would it be worth getting someone with a drone with a camera on to look .
Safka
No sightings of Rio today. We have distributed posters and flyers in the immediate area and talked to lots of dog walkers. No sign of him at all. We will be going down tonight with a portable bar b q Thank you for all your help. Xxx
Safka
Thank you for the last comment. Could someone local please give me an idea where this is and or a telephone contact for the owners. Thank you.
Hughes
We probably saw this dog on Sunday, att the far end of private fields/farmland to the right side of low road (with the Low Farm Barns/Norfolk By The Sea properties to your left side). Another local had spotted it and said it was running up and down along the same field edge.
We later saw a lady with a white dog who was running about so we assumed it was
hers, and as it was on the private land we could not easily get to it to try to catch it.
I have messaged on Facebook to see if any other locals have seen it, which includes some friends who work on the estate land. I hope that helps, really hope he/she is found.
