So pleased Molly is home. Brilliant postering! Sorry I didn't take the poster in Norsey Wood down today - put off stride by yellow lab turning black in the pond!

Wonderfull news.Happy days again.I fell in love with Molly instantly stay safe now! Gail xxx
BBKM
Yipee so pleased Molly is home safe with you Jackie, so happy your nightmare is over... very well done to everyone who has helped xxx
Once again those people who stole her will go unpunished and will probably do it again to someone else's family pet. Like Nina I ask Why? What makes them think they can just steal a dog like that. Seems you must have got to them Jackie yesterday when you visited a few sites. You were brave to do that. Sorry to rant but it makes me so angry xxx Sending a gentle hug for Molly and hope she recovers this trauma quickly xxx

Oh what fantastic news...Welcome home sweet Molly..back where you belong yayyy! :)xxx

I was out postering for Molly when I got a message from Jotty to say Molly was home! Thank you Jotty. I am over the moon! This shows how a devoted owner and lots of kind people; friends & strangers, can really pull something this massive off. And it was massive. Jackie, you did it! Well done. You got your baby back. How right Jackie was to poster all the travellers' sites and how brilliant that we had the media on board! Wish we always had that. Welcome home Molly, well done Jackie, well done everyone who helped. Way to go, Essex DogLost helpers! x

MANY thanks to both radio stations as not all do appeas but they must see that listeners are able to help with terrific results.

WOOOOO HOOOOOOO, just had a call from one very overjoyed Jackie! She had just got Molly. Molly is ok, not her normal self, subdued, and shocked no doubt but with all the tlc and being back home where she belongs I am sure she will soon be back to normal. Have asked for a reunited pic once all settled.

Well done Jackie and helpers who worked so hard, making Molly too hot to handle and once again showing how important posters and spreading the word is! This has made my weekend. Big hugs to Molly. Last edited: 2011-09-03 16:34:53 by Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex

CLARE
Hi, a man just turned up at my house with Molly asking if I knew her. I took his number and after he left, I remembered seeing your sign up in Padham's Green. Went up to get your number and called the mobile but there was no answer. When I called the man back to give him your details he said he was already with you. I hope this was the case and you are reunited. If not I have his number for you to get in touch. Sincerely hope molly is Ok. Therre are some good folk in the world!

Keeping a close eye on this thread. Jackie, have you been to Meadow Lane, Runwell, Wickford? SS11 7DX It's another traveller type site that could get overlooked. Not a million miles away if you go cross country..
Good Luck!Last edited: 2011-09-03 12:39:17 by CopperM

Bumped due to Molly being on radio Phoenix at about 10.20 today.
Jackie
thanks for your care bazil and you are dead right about the stiffer sentences that are needed. i am keeping fingers crossed and trying to keep positive . xx
BBKM
I keep checking here, do hope you have a sighting of Molly soon or better still she is found safe and back home with you. Its time stiffer sentences or punishments were given to people who steal dogs/pets. Good luck x
Jackie
Farmwatch have been informed that Molly is missing and have sent out alerts to all of their members

thanks skysasha.i will get it done as soon as poss x
SkySasha
Hi Jackie, Jo can pass you my address so that you can send me some posters. I saw you've been busy with them today, saw one at the 'hall', although I'd also put one on the fence at the entrance too. Another visible place would be at the level crossing. Really hope you hear something soon and I'll start postering as soon as I receive them.x
DogLostJayne - Founder Doglost.
Yikes guys best to use those plastic cable sealers as staplegun and drawing pins in trees does not impress local authorities..try sellotaping to dog poo bins and shop windows...
Barney 'n' Ozzie's mum
Just wanted to say that some councils don't like you attaching posters to trees with drawing pins and will remove them (certainly around my way they do). How about using something like gaffa tape and putting them on lamp posts instead where possible?
Jackie
have been out today to a couple of traveller sites in the chelmsford area. handed out posters and had chats with the travellers about molly. put more posters up in places where lots of people will see them. gave some posters to some police officers who said they will spread the word. thanks to jo at doglost who has arranged for molly to be featured in the brentwood weekly newspaper- that is next weeks edition. have had leaflets made up and more posters for distribution over the weekend. thanks to evryone who is helping- need to get molly back to safety. xxx
Jackie
i have been using drawing pins to attach posters to wood. if you let me know where you are skysasha i will give you some posters. i think we must live near each other x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
You can use sellotape; it does actually work quite well if you wrap it round a couple of times to & bottom. If you have a staple gun you can use that for anything wood. Trees are kindly helpful to us but sometimes posters on trees can get taken down, sometimes not. You can also use a staple gun on park benches, wooden fences etc, but tape is fine. Put posters in the eyeline of motorists in the lane of travel on i.e. telegraph poles, lamp posts, at junctions where they have to sit for a moment, phone boxes, BT street boxes, bus stops (sometimes get removed). I tend to poster anything and everything except speed signs or we'll get told off. :-) Go for it! Thank you SkySasha. x
SkySasha
Hi Jo, yep, address is correct. Please feel free to send me some posters and I'll put them up wherever I go. btw what's best method of attaching posters to trees/gates etc?
Jackie
thanks for everything jo. have sent e mail to ray clark at bbc essex to see if i can get on the radio. i have also listed molly on another site - animal search uk. also checked their found dogs but no luck
Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
I'm in touch with helper Karen again, who has great contacts, and is also friends with an owner of a local radio station so we're passing on all Molly's details and fingers crossed for an appeal on there too.
Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
I'm really pleased the Brentwood Gazette picked up the story and are going to do a full page feature, I think we may have DL helper Karen to thank for that as she gave me the name of a friend of hers who is editor there so like the others he got an email too, and she tweeted him ;o)

Great to see she's on the Essex Police website so prominently, and even better going in the free Yellow Advertiser. Here's a link to her feature on the Essex Police website so helpers can have a look -

Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
Thanks SkySasha, I know Jackie, Molly's owner, was having a load of posters printed so she may be able to post you some if you are happy to pop them up. I'd send you some but my printer cartridge is worn out! If you were happy to do that you could email me your address (or I can get it from admin via your registration on here if that's up to date??) - jot80@hotmail.co.uk and I will pass on to Jackie.Last edited: 2011-09-01 16:29:24 by Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex

Hi, really hope Molly is found soon. I dog walk in this area and have been keeping a keen eye out since I was told about this yesterday. I was at Ingatestone Hall yesterday and today and so far no posters on the entrances/gates etc. I don't have a printer otherwise I'd do it myself. I've shared the facebook group and have told everyone I meet out on my walks. Lets hope you get some good news soon.x
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Fantastic Jackie! You are doing a job. x
Jackie
I have asked them to put dog lost information in the article and the facebook group x
Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
Great to hear the Brentwood Gazette have agreed to run an article! You can always give them DogLost's 0844 800 3220 number as an additional number to feature in the article for anyone to call in complete confidence or anonymously (and we would obviously pass the info on to you) as it sometimes helps info come in having that extra option and people will easily be able to find her online too via DL. xLast edited: 2011-09-01 13:12:04 by Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex

Molly's details being circulated on Twitter (thanks Riverlady and to helper Karen). Have also this evening emailed all local papers hoping they will run an appeal to help get Molly home.

Molly looks lovely. Hopefully she'll be back with you soon. Cross posted on cocker forum.
Jackie
I have been to Dale Farm and they were very helpful - let me go all round the site putting up posters and talking to people. Have put posters along some roads around basildon . Also put some posters in local vets and pet shops and grooming parlours. Keeping my fingers crossed for some good news. going out to do some more posters later. Friends are putting some posters up in Rayleigh. Alerted some farmers across Essex.

You are doing really well, Jackie. Sometimes it does take a while to hear anything; just keep busy pro-actively working to get Molly home, as you are doing. The world needs to know about lovely Molly. All your work leads to her being found. She's getting too hot to handle with all these posters going up. The press Jotty has mentioned sounds absolutely fantastic. That is just what you need and you have a brilliant dog warden by all accounts. You and Molly have a lot going for you. Come on Molly sweetheart, let's get you home. x
Jackie
Thanks for all your help. I've created a group on Facebook called "Help find Molly". Please add it and send on to all your friends and ask them to do the same. All help very much appreciated.
Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
Jackie, great to see you have registered and posting here....good to keep all the fab helpers updated. Please post the name of the FB group you have set up, or the link, on here so people can join and share.
Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
Have spoken to Jackie who is doing a stirling job with posters, ringing round and raising awareness for Molly. Posters going up further afield today. All vets rung and photo and poster will be going to those. Suggested posters at Ingatestone Saddlery too which owner’s will cover. Going to hopefully get some good local press coverage, owners have already been in touch with a reporter at the Brentwood Gazette, but off the back of the national press on dog theft atm, hopefully the locals will run something a little more extensive.

Police issued a CRN and are making some enquiries – nothing significant to go on yet sadly.

A farm worker reported seeing a van that was driving around the farm – the only vehicles normally on the farm and where Molly was being walked are either farm vehicles or from the shoot, of which this was from neither. It is *possibly* a Renault van, and it was GREY in colour. No registration unfortunately. Have suggested details are circulated round local farm watch schemes, it is quite possibly the vehicle has been doing the rounds and someone may even have noted the reg. Also advised circulating details to all local PCSOs who are on the ground and out and about. Molly’s story will also be published in the Police Newspaper and circulated across different stations etc.

Hopefully with all the publicity and hard work, it won’t be long before lovely Molly is home. Thanks everyone for all your help.

I shall start spreading the word and postering around my patch today.

Your molly is gorgeous I really feel for you(have an identical one)hoping shes found soon.If the travellers are moving on tomorrow you need to be tracking them untill your sure they dont have her.Good luck. Stolen Tays mum Gail xxx

I havent heard anything yet about molly. letting as many people as poss know she is missing. am offering a reward for her safe return. am going to distribute posters tomorrow. thankyou all so much for your help and support. jackie
THIS IS FOR JOSH !!
Hope Molly is found safe and well very soon and these lowlifes lose something precious(hopefully a vital body part!).Take Care and Good Luck,Bob.

Please, please everyone, I am so grateful for all you are doing, I have created a group on Facebook and trying to spread the word this way aswell.

Well done Jotty!
Jo - Area Co-ordinator, Essex
I have emailed owner also - hopefully she may register on here and post any progress so far.

Please everyone and anyone help make gorgeous Molly 'too hot to handle'. This is devasting and I can't imagine how shocked her poor owner is. Hopefully we'll be able to get some good press coverage.

I have put on various FB groups, mine and also some other big groups from previous dogs missing in similar area (they're not back but will call upon all those on the lists).
DogLostKimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders
Thank you Rosalie. I woudl like to say I hope she' sback before the weekend, but if not I shall poster along the A414 from Harlow to Norton Mandeville. If anyone could poster the other side of A414 at Ingatestone, that would really help, as I'm not sure I could get that far myself. Yes, you are right about the Dale Farm, Crays Hill eviction. I am thinking along the same lines - sadly. Who else would steal a poor dog in this manner? This baby has really got to me, please let's get her home. x
Rosalie
Can I just say Padham Green is Mountnessing, Ingatestone before you get into Chelmsford, it might help if any one saw anything in that area.

Oh No! This is dreadful. Am texting owner for more information and we need to let public know to keep their dogs safe. I suspect this is the same group of people who had abducted "Unknown" Boxer "Cee" Herts & Essex border. It actually gives us a bit more to go one regarding both these precious dogs. I will poster heavily at the travellers sites in Harlow; any helpers in Chelmsford and Herts areas please poster heavily around travellers sites near you. Pease help find this poor little baby quickly! Last edited: 2011-08-30 13:08:02 by Kimmybear - Area Co-ordinator, Essex & Hertfordshire borders

Dear God! what is going on these days with dogs being taken from their owners. When oh when will justice be done!. Rant over. Do hope that Molly will be kept safe and returned to her owners.

Oh how awful, poor Molly and her owners. Lets hope she is found soon xx
DogLostCJ - Police Liaison & SE Regional Coordinator
Owners were walking their dog on farmland when a vehicle was heard. Molly was one side of a hedge and the vehicle sped off and when they got there Molly had gone. They have been given an incident number so advised to press for a crime reference number.

PHOTO to be sent on to admin as soon as one is sorted so mailing can go out.

Molly i an older dog wwho is DEAF and has neurological probelms that make her head tilt to one side. Molly is chipped and the company have already been notified along with dog wardens vets etc, Sadly there is no CCTV at the farm.
