From Frank’s owner....
Frank is still missing there is a good chance he’s been stolen so could be anywhere by now.

Frank is a male French Bulldog he has a bald patch on his back so easily recognisable he could be itching a lot if being given the wrong foods also please be vigilant.
He went missing in Fritton woods on Monday 21st October... has a neighbour, friend, work colleague etc etc got a new French Bulldog?
Please, please keep yours eyes peeled.

Share share share let’s make Frank too hot to handle!

From Frank’s owner...
I’ve been quiet about frank just coming to terms with him not being here, but he is still missing - the longer he’s missing the further away he seems and it’s heartbreaking It’s really, really tough. Please be vigilant, please keep sharing, please keep walking the woods, we haven’t lost hope at all I have visions of him following me out of the woods every evening I’m there! Every morning I think this is the day! we walk the woods everyday in hope of this and feel feel so much guilt not being able to be there 24/7!

UPDATE from Frank’s owner...
It’s been a weekend of up and downs trying to find frank. There has been literally hundreds of people helping look for him with a couple of of possible sightings but unfortunately I have seen nothing! I Want to thank everyone for taking time out of their weekend to help up - it’s really humbling.

On Saturday a lovely couple brought there tracker dogs down to try and find him they definitely sented him quite a lot around the woods and gave us a more refined area to search they said some of the scents where 24-48 hours old this was a boost and gives us hope- this is the area at the bottom of the lane near the keepers lodge.

There is still a high possibility he’s still in that wood!!!

We then had an amazing family come yesterday with a heat drone we searched for hours with it but it unfortunately turned up nothing.

It’s now Monday and I have to go work today, I will obviously be at the woods this evening, if anyone that does have time please keep searching the woods being extra vigilant checking bracken and hedge rows. I will print lots of posters today and spread them far and wide tonight. There is a good chance frank has been taken so will still need to get his face out there. If anyone has a new little frenchie please just check it’s not frank.

****FRANKIE UPDATE ***
Please share we need you

Hello guys! Tommorow Saturday and I know it’s the best day that everyone may be able to help!

WE NEED YOU MORE THAN EVER

The sightings have given us hope, we still have loads of ground to cover. And also LOKI is coming - when he’s there we need to let him do his thing but it’s doesn’t harm you being there in fact we would love it if you can help, there’s loads of area that Loki won’t be in that still needs covering. Please go off the paths the braken needs searching, he will be hiding though like a scared animal. Just think you never see deer but there there!

Frank will now be very scared and probably gone into survival mode so if we can quiet searches, not shouting his name! we’re now looking in undergrowth, bracken holes etc! This is ground we can’t cover alone and would be greatful for anyone that can help!

Once again we are extremely grateful for anyone that can help this weekend or has helped in the past week! Xxxx

FROM FRANK'S OWNER......
I have had a couple of sightings of what could be Frank in an area very close to where I lost him. The drone did also see a possible heat source here. Is there anyone available that can come and help me scan the area? x
DogLostHelen - Regional Co-ordinator East Anglia.
The search will continue today at Fritton Woods again, this is a big area to cover, if anybody can help search today please get in contact with Frank’s owner x

UPDATE from Frank's owner....Hi Guys I just wanted to give you an update! we had a thermal drone at the woods today and covered about 60% of the woods, unfortunately we didn't find frank! I am now feeling really down glum about it all, I have tried lots of people for canine tracking and at the moment Loki is our only hope. I am hoping he will come at the weekend. I just wanted to keep you all posted xx
