Thanks for all the support and suggestions, everyone. It is this kind of vigilance and persistence that hopefully will help to get these dogs home. Owners are extremely proactive, they follow everything up. The Alfie's dog wasn't Oliver. Oliver is chipped to his owners with up to date details, and he is an older dog altogether. Well done everyone, keep it up. These two have to be somewhere!
Did anybody check this dog at all?I know its a long shot but they did have the same chain collar
Advertised in The Countryman's Weekly magazine today. I hope it brings some news.

There has been updates on Dollys page if you look at that.
Also re posted on Facebook page please look out for these missing dogs in Cornwall. Hope there's some news soon
Does anyone at Doglost have any feedback on these lost dogs? I check every day and hope for something positive for these two adorable boys.
Do we know if the owners have had a chance yet to check out the dogs mentioned at alfieslostdogs?
found up country..........please have a look

Long shot I know

Wonder if a holiday-maker took them back home, wherever that may be. Wonder if they can get this on TV or National radio or both. Or, national papers. How about a story in Women's weekly mags? They sometimes do stories about things that readers tell them. To make it more feasible for a magazine, they could talk about DogLost and other dogs lost/found and how they are still searching for these two - with photo. Or maybe even just the sory of these two and the mine shafts would be interesting enough to grab some attention. Need to make it bigger than just a lost dog story as we know what the press is like, but magazines may be more welcoming to this idea. Is that Bella mag still out there? Worth a try. Praying they are both safe and reunited with owners quickly. God bless them. x

Owners have been extremely proactive. We can now rule out the shafts on and around Carn Marth as they have been thoroughly investigated - no dogs down there at all. There have been no sightings reported since a possible one of two dogs, one a boxer, one unidentified, heading along the road at the bottom of Shoot Hill, in the direction of Carharrack, on the day after Dolly and Oliver went missing from Carn Marth. The owner is waiting to talk to the person who saw the dogs. Since then there has been nothing, and they are now believed stolen. Owners have succeeded in obtaining a crime number, and are extending the publicity on a national level. They are doing so much, I do hope they get the breakthrough they so deserve.
Has anyone heard from the owners at all?I did ring but only got answer phone.

Odd for both dogs not to return. Did you check the railways, if there are any? Hope there are not, but need to rule it out. They could well have been found and kept by someone. Also, as has been said, can you check out the mine shafts again. Sometimes you really need to pressure people as they assume something is not possible, but they don't actually go and look. Are you able to check yourself or is it too dangerous? Sometimes you cannot trust what people say and you need to do it yourself, or at least until you feel confident that others have thoroughly checked. Good luck. x
Has there been checks to see if there are mine shafts in the area at all?

Is there any news on Oliver and Dolly?

The Camborne dog definitely wasn't Oliver - it was a local, female dog who had got out, and was reunited with her owner within hours.
Owners have been extremely proactive, postering and giving out flyers up as far as Newquay and St Agnes as well as locally. No sightings at all yet. Have suggested they talk to the mining consultants again with a view to further investigation.

Owners are proactive, and would have been in touch if Oliver was found. Will check in with them asap.

Thank you Moogie for puting this on, I have sent an email to ZZ alerting to this. I hope he is caught soon whoever he is.

On radio cornwall this morning there was a bulletin about a chocolate lab running around in Camborne called Olly. Is this the same dog?
Have these dogs been found?
I've just been checking this out - if you go to www.labradoodle.org.uk there are two labradoodles found near Woodchurch being held by Haven Kennels, but I can't see the connection with Oliver and Dolly. I think these may be the dogs Littlehelper was talking about.
Cornwall to Kent ? Have they been stolen then. Not sure Littlehelper what is going on...

Littlehelper, could you explain more, please? Which two dogs have been found?
Spotted this on www.dogforum.co.uk These two doods have been found in a field near Woodchurch in Kent. Haven Kennels are looking after them (available on facebook). Anyone know anything? They will surely be missing their families so I hope they get reunited soon. If not the kennel will be looking to rehome them.

At this time it looks highly unlikely that Oliver and Dolly have gone down a shaft.
Hope Oliver and Dolly are home real soon. Have FB'd & Tweeted.

Oliver and Dolly are missing in an area of many mine workings. Mining consultants have been contacted, and are liaising with the owners.
Sorry to see that OLIVER is missing.
