Have posted this info to 'Find Topesy' fb page, as came in from Emma Nicholas on our fb page (DogLost Cornwall)..................Just returned from walking my dog in Unity woods St Day. I spotted a greyhound / lurcher type dog, very scared and fast, Grey with white chest and a white tipped tail. It disappeared into the woods and definitely had no owner with it. Just wondering if one is missing matching this description.
I will notify them if any further info/sightings come in

It is a year ago today that Topesy went missing.
Her family are still actively searching & spreading the word.

Topesy's owner has advised that the dog found in Blisland mentioned below was NOT Topesy.

A blue/grey female whippet has been found in the Blisland area this evening and I am bringing it to your attention in case it could be Topesy.

The post is on the DOGLOST CORNWALL page and the screenshot here: https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xtl1/v/t1.0-9/12219484_944293775642344_1342064518341490332_n.jpg?oh=4e7e311fe64bf96979b26178690cd64e&oe=56AEA4C0

I have asked the finder to notify the Dog Warden.

I have also sent this as an email.

Kind regards,
Geoff Axford - Area Volunteer (Doglost)
Sorry, Chilsworthy dog is not Topesy :-(, I've just seen him and it's definitely a male dog.
Not yet, I was going to check at the pub first, but glad to hear she has picked this up. I've left a poster with the lady who saw the dog and asked me, and I also asked at the pub but the person who contacted me from there before wasn't around. I've left a poster there anyway and will keep an eye out and call asap if I get anything more concrete.
DogLostMax - Area Co-ordinator - Cornwall & Area Volunteer - Durham & Ireland
Thank you cycas. I am not sure if you told Topesy's owner or not, but I have had a message off her & she saw this posting & is going to follow it up.
I have had a couple of people in Chilsworthy village near Gunnislake ask me if I know anything about a blue whippet with white chest that seems to be hanging about the village (They asked me as I have sighthounds but it's not one of mine). I haven't spotted it myself, and the people that did were not very clear about markings or sex, but were definite that it was grey in colour and smaller than my dogs so right size for a whippet. I will see if I can get a sighting or photo myself and will take a Topesy poster up to the pub.
Put a few posters actually in Bodmin and over the moors for her

I really hope she will be found soon but via our own baby know how hard it s so hang in there xx
I know it says male but they have been wrong before. Whippet found St Austell area ID 88098
Topesy's thunderclap is due to finish tomorrow. Any more able to click on the link and support to help get her back home to Amy?
Please check this one out - not much detail but worth a check - 420 FOUND in Brandwood, on 22.04.15
Whippet type, sex witheld, blue/white.

There has been a sighting of a dog similar looking to Topesy in Bodmin ( no further info, so possibly town centre), person who saw the dog messaged Topesy's owner after seeing that she was missing. No further info at this stage, but they will keep a look out just in case.

Have put a comment to this effect on her fb page 'Find Topesy'
Topsey is featured in todays Countrymans Weekly
DogLostMax - Area Co-ordinator - Cornwall & Area Volunteer - Durham & Ireland
Thanks Jean, but the white on the head goes a lot further up on the found dog. I am sure too I have seen on another posting that is was confirmed as not being Topesy. Thank you
any possibility this is her?

I have put Topesy forward for our missing list in Countrymans Weekly. It may take a couple of weeks to go to print.
DogLostMax - Area Co-ordinator - Cornwall & Area Volunteer - Durham & Ireland
Have spoken to HOME & passed on relevant info.
Bumped due to possible sighting

Tx Home have passed onto our co-ordinator to look into...
Seen very very similar on 20th January, walking down a street in St Austell with a man. His dog did have a white tip to her tail,couldn't see much else she had a coat on.
I will keep my eye out for them again.
SO SO sorry for your loss
Take care
From Max. I have edited out some info, which has been passed to Topesy's owner.

Circulating on twitter....Blue/Grey Whippet MISSING http://bit.ly/1vFCIf1 #Tresarrett #Blisland #Cornwall #PL30 Plz RT will look up @findtopsey now
There is now a twitter account for Topesy - @findtopesy - as well as a Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/findtopesy/?fref=ts
Looking at the map of the area, there are a lot of woodland areas with a river running through it, Topsey may be around this area and might be able to hide very well indeed. Make sure that the Postmen, Milkmen, holiday cottages, paperboys, etc all have posters. Put posters up everywhere you can - this dog will be in survival mode, looking for fresh water and food. Is most likely to be seen early in the morning or at sunset.

Shared again. I do hope she's found soon. Stay safe Topsey
PLEASE SHARE and spread the word.
My beautiful blue whippet Topesy has been missing since Monday the 24th of November and was last seen in the Blisland area. This is an urgent plea for any sitings or information regarding Topesy within Cornwall (or beyond if matches the description).
Topesy is light blue with a white stripe down her face and muzzle, she has a white chest and stomach with four white paws and a triangle shaped white patch on the back of her neck. She is microchipped.
If you have ANY information please contact the Meesons on:

Have spoken to owner. The dog went missing from home yesterday, not sure of time but noticed she was missing in the afternoon.
