From Amy 4/8:
Officially 6 weeks now and sadly Benji is still missing πŸ˜”
There is no new possible sightings and it’s just heartbreaking to not know where he is and get closure on what really happened to him.
Please all i ask is if you know something or if you have Benji then please do the right thing and just help us get him home to where he belongs, drop him of at a nearby vets or ring the number below.
Benji is very much missed and we are all worried about him and hoping he’s ok. 😒
Please keep checking local free-ads, gumtree, Pets4Homes and/or other online pet sale pages.
I can’t thank you all enough for continuing to share and keeping Benji in your thoughts, We won’t ever stop looking for him πŸ₯°
Let’s keep making Benji too hot to handle!! (Share share share) πŸ’•πŸ’•
Below are photos of Benji’s markings, the collar he was wearing plus the tag (added as extra image above)

From Amy 21/7:
"🐾 Good morning, it’s officially 1 month today since Benji went missing. 😒
Below are picture of Benji’s markings, the exact collar and tag he was wearing plus some photos of what he might possibly look like now as his hair will have grown and he’ll be looking a little more scruffier than usual we imagine. We highly doubt he’ll still have his collar on however that’s not to say it’s not been dumped somewhere. Benji also has 4 front teeth missing, he lost them earlier in the year which makes him quite distinctive (also in photos below).
All we ask is that you please keep sharing far and wide and continue to make him too hot to handle so we can get him back home, we all miss him loads and every single day gets harder and harder. 😒πŸ₯°
Thanks everyone for your continued support it’s very much appreciated!!

From Amy via FB 29/6:
"🐾🐾 update on Benji. Day 6 still missing 🐾🐾
We’ve been very busy these past few days and throughout the night with two different scent dogs attempting to help find Benji, both picking up scents in a few different locations which we are now working on with cameras etc so we’re keeping our fingers crossed that he’s still in the area 🀞🏽
Trying to stay positive and hopeful that he’ll make an appearance very soon and if I can still ask for you to keep your eyes and ears peeled for him when walking around John Muir I’d really appreciate it πŸ₯°
Can’t thank Dani + Nova, Hazel + Thor, Graeme and Shannon, Mari and of course my amazing Parents enough for all their help recently you guys have been amazing and helped me stay as positive as I can through this horrible situation. πŸ’•
Thanks again to everyone that’s still looking out for Benji and messaging me daily for updates it means the world to me. πŸ₯°

Fingers crossed Benji is found safe and soon. xxx

Benji is still missing - I have to assume that 176800 is a duplicate entry which has since been incorrectly coded as Reunited (I will move to Unkown).
This from Amy via FB this morning (Saturday 25/6):
"🐾🐾 Morning everyone, latest update on Benji 🐾🐾
There has still been no sightings of him unfortunately, we had 2 separate drones out throughout the day and neither were very successful but hoping to get back out today, Weather dependant 🀞🏽🀞🏽 We also tried using a snake camera and a thermal spotter but no luck, the sand wasn’t doing us any favours either for the camera πŸ˜”
We are going to do a sweep today at 5pm and hoping we can gather 20/30 people to come help if possible, meeting point will be in the car park then we’ll split into two and work either end of the beach. Sweep every possible hole by putting a stick into it to try and stir it, then listen.
We’ve printed off posters that we’ll be putting up all around John Muir and surrounding areas also.
Again I can’t thank you all enough for your kind messages and help over these past few days πŸ₯°πŸ’•
Let’s get this wee guy home we’re all missing him loads πŸ₯°πŸΆ

Benji is already posted on local groups and shared to DogLost Central Scotland, and is also on Drone SAR for Lost Dogs UK.
Advice has been given by myself and others but I will also send standard advice sheets, including scam alert poster.
Will add link & poster image in comments on existing posts.
Sorry to see that BENJI is missing.
