Find Skye admin here this little lady is still missing sadly. Last known sighting was Elrig but no recent signs so please share far and wide in case she's moved on to pastures new nearby. Skye will no doubt be very different to this photo after all this time exposed to the elements so please scan any dogs found at the nearest vets or via a doglost volunteer nearby. Kindest regards Team Skye. Xx

Wonder if the owner has checked for unknown deceased red collies? I saw one on here a while ago and it's haunted me ever since...there was never any answer to what happened to this dog http://www.doglost.co.uk/dog-blog.php?dogId=100047#.WA9EqvkrKUk

3 years today - crossposted from Skye's FB page x

Good evening to all Skye's supporters, I have to apologise for the delay in writing this post but as you can imagine, it is not an easy task.
This day, 3 years ago, our Beautiful Baby Girl slipped her collar after she became spooked, she went into hiding and we have tried every day since that terrible event to catch Skye and bring her home.
We have amazing supporters, the best admin and ground team , a lot of whom are now very good friends, even though most of us haven't met. Supporters have befriended other supporters and through the love we all have for Skye, friendships have formed and I'm sure will remain for many years.
We have over come any obstacles that have been thrown in our path, we have searched in all weathers, spent 3 winters without electric , fresh water or a toilet, with just a hob to cook on..
Travelled up and down the country almost every week no matter what the weather because we have always known where Skye is and we have never given up trying to bring her back home.
Sadly, not everyone is happy with us going out searching on and around the land which Skye made her temporary home and we have had one problem after the next over the last few months with severe consequences..
We have been quiet of late because there hasn't been anything to report .. We continue to search and leave food out for Skye but we haven't had any sightings for a while now. We haven't found paw prints or fur etc..
It breaks our hearts... We do believe Skye is still alive but feel she may have moved to a safer area.
We are now searching areas where Skye has been previously.
We need you all to share Skye's poster far and wide. We are desperate for a sighting and if she is on the move then she will be seen by someone.
Skye will be completely feral now, but we will never give up on her, never give up hope that we will bring our baby girl home one day..
It has been a difficult year for Luke and I but also for our family, our admins and ground team.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for staying with us and for always being there for us.
We ask now that you share and tweet like crazy, we need as many people as possible to know that Skye is alive and still missing but that she may have moved..
Please pray that God and St Francis keep Skye safe until she is home ..
Carol & Luke xx

Hi Wensmum,
thank you for your post, we have been in contact with Ray but sadly he couldnt help us at that time. I have also looked on the site you shared re a collie on Leigh and sadly not the little one we are trying to get home. Kind regards Clare (Admin for FindSkye on facebook)
wensmum
Contacts for Ray:
Telephone: 01564 823244

Email: raydedicoat@yahoo.co.uk

There is a sable collie on Leigh stray site, but I'm pretty sure that is not Skye, the blaze is too narrow on that dog, but maybe someone who knows Skye in the flesh should just check? I know it is very unlikely, but...........

Agree with all Mathers22 says below - it is so sad for Skye and her owners. Can someone help that is knowledgeable in catching dogs that have been out for so long ? Julie x
mathers22
Poor Skye I feel so sorry for this poor dog and her owners. She has been missing well over a year now and I know they have lots of helpers but they still have caught her. Surely, there is someone with perhaps more knowledge or know how could help them xx
cn72
We are now in the belief that Skye may have relocated to Elrig / Lochhead area of scotland. Please can this be updated. We have had two recent sightings in these area's and we ourselves are looking to move location so we can set up a feed station and co ordinate searches from nearer these area's. Please Check the Find Skye page on facebook for the latest info. Kindest Regards Clare (Admin)

Thank you Frances Markey for the link you posted, Sadly this little one is not Skye. Kindest regards Clare Neal (Admin for Find Skye).

Thank you to all that contacted the page regarding a little girl found in the halifax area whom looked similar to Skye, Sadly we can confirm this doggie was not Skye. Skye is still missing in the Monreith area of Scotland. Kindest Regards Clare Admin on Find Skye xx

As an admin for Find Skye I can inform you that we are currently looking into this little one mentioned on here that was found recently and pointed out to us via this page, We are awaiting a call from the vets this morning so will hopefully have more news soon. Kindest Regards Clare (Team Skye)

Hi Alikat I am on Skye's facebook page and they are working hard but it must be so upsetting for them to be so close yet unable to catch her. I feel so sorry for them, and obviously for all the other owners of missing dogs xx
alikat
Mathers22, if you go onto the Facebook page "Find Skye" you will see everything that is being done there. The owners have a fantastic team helping them and for the time being it's softly, softly. Their commitment is just amazing and hopefully it won't be too much longer before their patience is rewarded.
mathers22
This must be so awful for Skye's owners to see her and not be able to catch her. Can't anyone help xx

This little girl is still missing, last sighted in Monrieth area of Scotland, Any info please call Carol on 07900 937878. If spotted please call asap and take note of where sighted, which direction she was heading and description of how she looks now (Skye has been missing since Oct 22nd 2013. Many thanks Clare (Team Skye)

From Skye's owner...............
We have had a few sightings in different locations over the last couple of days. Some were possible sightings but one was a positive, at 1700 hrs today. We are not giving the exact location because of past problems with hoax calls but we do think she is around Port William Mochrum and Monreith. She seems to be trying to find her way back.
The areas have been rechecked and the caravan park has also been checked so currently we don't know which area she is in but believe she is getting closer..
We again ask if anyone sees Skye to ring me as soon as possible on 07900937878.. Try and get a photo and just watch her. See which way she goes. Luke and I are trying to get back ASAP. I have work commitments at weekend but I'm working on it Carol xx
Kinsally
So glad there has been another sighting of dear Skye. Really praying for good news & so wishing for her to be reunited with her owners who are trying so desperately hard to find her. Good luck xx

So pleased she has been seen. Lots of chicken by the shed should keep her around there for you to get her home. Good luck.

Message from owner. ................Hi everyone we had another sighting of Skye today . She was seen near to where we have the shed and where Skye was returning for food until it flooded recently. Approx 5 or so miles away. We have been searching this area all day and have found fresh pawprints all around the area of the sighting. The local farners have been spoken to and are aware that Skye is in the area
Sorry this is late, we have spent many hours there today. Then I had problems with my car and had to get Greenflag out. Thats all sorted now, I hope ... I cant get on facebook at the moment, having a few problems with my phone so if you have PM"d me I cant pick them up just now, sorry..
We are very excited about this sighting. Its a fair way from Dunragit.. but not impossible..
Skye wasnt limping when she was seen today.
We ask that you are all vigilant on the A75 between Dervaids and the 2nd Kirkcowen turn off, coming from stranraer especially bet 0700-1100
If anyone sees Skye please ring me on 07900937878
Many thanks.. We are very tired today spending around 8
Hrs searching.. even Charlie, Meg and Storm are tired lol
We would like to thank you all for your continued support
We didnt go back to the hidey hole we found in Torres wood because it was too dark by the time we had finished searching the new sight area. We will how ever, go in the morning Carol xx
lisa ashpole
If she is believed to be limping.Can a tracker dog not try and find her before its too late..she must be in pain if she is limping :-(

SKYE IS STILL MISSING - BUT-new sighting again today, Saturday 25th by the railway bridge one mile from Dunragit, there is a school called Drochduil, there are road works here, due to new bypass and plant workers are also there, she may have headed towards Mote Woods, believed to be limping! She appears to be working in a triangle! Last 3 sightings include we had a sighting near 3 lochs, west freugh and now Mote wood.

Hi all, We have had a motion sensor camera on the site where we think Skye went missing from. We are now trying to get hold of another camera to cover the area from multiple angles, If you think you can help us please do not hesitate to contact us on the numbers above, Thanks Bethany

Can anyone put food down near to where she was seen to keep her confined to the area. Poor little girl must be terrified especially with the awful weather you have been having. I am too far away to be of any practical help but I do wish you all good luck and hope she is home very soon.
alikat
Brilliant news that there seems to have been a new sighting. My prayers are with you today - if it is Skye, and she is as tired as described, hopefully she will soon be willing to get into a nice warm place with fresh food and allow herself to be taken home.

Good luck finding dear Skye I hope this lovely girl is home very soon xx

UPDATE from Skye's owner !!!!! ...........Good afternoon everyone.. Good news.. ( hopefully) the bad weather ruining Skye's bolt hole may have forced Skye to move. We have received a call from a the driver of a milk tankard who wasn't aware of Skye, saw a very dirty/muddy collie whilst travelling through Stoneykirk at 2345 30/12/13. The dog is desc as being very bedraggled, thin and was terrified. Graham stayed in his vehicle, he knew the dog wouldn't go to him or let him catch it. It tried to run up the embankment but it was steep and the dog seemed too tired. Graham stayed behind the dog as it walked along the road, it kept trying to find some where to hide . Graham then turned left to go towards Port Patrick and the dog walked towards the town hall in Lochan.
Irene is en route to meet Graham now with posters. We only have a few left, we are waiting for new ones to be printed. If anyone has any posters and is in a position to put them up in Port Patrick, Lochan and surrounding villages or if you could arrange to meet Irene with some that would be great. The telephone numbers need to be changed though before they are put up.. If anyone is able to print new posters from this page, that would be great, the new numbers are on there.. Maybe some good will come from this terrible weather.. Carol xx

Skye's page is still there- but awful news today from her owner............
Well.. If this weekend hasn't been bad enough .. It has taken hours for me to be able to write this .. Here we go..
The whole area is flooded. You can't get near the shed it is submerged in water... Thankfully we made the decision to move the trap a few days ago otherwise it would be floating down stream by now.. We set the trap higher up so it only has around 2" of water in it.. Skye cannot get to the sight at all and neither can we unless we swim. The sheep in the next field have drowned this is heartbreaking .. Yesterday we still had fresh foot prints.. Team skye are saddened by the loss of the sheep,and are deeply concerned for Skye's safety.. She hates water.. We pray that Skye finds a way to safety and stays there . The floods are predicted to last 2-3 days.. We cannot set the camera or the trap because no one can get there, to Check them.
For now we can only pray for Skye, and the stranded sheep and pray that the rain stops,the land dries out quickly so that Skye doesn't move on:(

No, the Find Skye FB page is still up and running, I've got it on screen now - don't know where you got your information from. Maybe some people have had to be blocked?

SKYE IS STILL MISSING !! There are new possible sightings of Skye in the DG8 area. We need a much larger group to assist with the weekend search. We are appealing for more numbers for Saturday please. Can you message helpfindskye@live.co.uk and let the search party know if you are able to assist. You will then be provided with meeting location and time.
Also there was a poss sighting of Skye walking along the A75 from the direction of Stranraer towards Glenluce, near Glenluce at 1830 on Sun 24/11/13. This has come from someone who knows Skye.. Maybe she hurt her paw whilst out on this occasion and that is why she was seen limping on Monday..

For all updates please go to Skye's Facebook page.

Another sighting of Skye yesterday. The lady who saw the dog she believed to be Skye, said the dog was limping. Skye may also have been in the park today near the doctors surgery heading towards the woodland leading towards the caravan park. This where owners were staying and have been. Heavily scented by owners and Skye's brothers Charlie n Storm and her sister Meg.

Message from owner."Skye ran across the A75 at approx 06.45 whilst I was still searching the field she was last seen in.. I was calling her but she was further up the road. She is walking slow showing signs of being tired and was almost hit by two cars.. Luckily the drivers managed to avoid hitting Skye.. "

UPDATE ON SKYE !!!! She has been seen near Glenluce Antiques Centre based at Dervaird Farm, just off the A75 in Wigtownshire, South-West Scotland. It is not a farm but an antique business. Skye was running on the grass at the side of the A 75. This is showing that Skye has moved on quite a bit now and she was spotted near the A75 dual carriageway around 4.40 pm yesterday afternoon. Police and owner have been out searching all night. Skye was seen in a field near there, but went out of sight again, but it is likely she is still up there. I am going to attach a screenshot of a map of the area where she was seen yesterday. If you are in this area, please call Carol on 07825685957 ASAP if you spot Skye. You can also inform police on 101.

Thanks Lyn. I don't think it will be the Skye as it would have meant her running over 200 miles in 2 days, and the dog at Dyce is a spaniel. Thanks for thinking of Skye though.
Lyn
I have just seen this notice on Furbar News facebook page. Hi fubar! Can you make fb people aware that there is a brown and white collie wondering about Dyce (glendhome) area by it's self! Incase the owners are looking for it and are worried.

Hope this helps
