A GRIEVING family is desperately appealing for information about their much-loved dog which went missing in the Thame area more than a month ago.
Several witnesses have seen eight-year-old male crossbreed Quigley in confirmed witnesses since he went on the run from Watlington.
His owners, the Palker family, are American ex-pats living in London who left beloved Quigley behind when they went back to the States for Christmas.
Holly Palker said: “It was with a heavy heart that my husband, two young children and I left him boarding at a person’s house while we, as ex-pats, went to New York to visit our family for Christmas.
“When we received a call in New York that he had run off when out on a walk we were thrown into frenzy. My husband was on a flight back to the UK two hours later to search for him. My children and I returned the following day cutting our trip short in hopes of finding him.
“All my daughter, Olivia, wants for her sixth birthday which is coming up soon is for Quigley to return home.”
The much-loved pet has now been missing since January 2 but was recently spotted near Bledlow on January 31.
Holly said: “The truth is that Quigley’s whereabouts is anybody’s guess. What we do know is that in the first two weeks Quigley had been seen numerous times in the area of Christmas Commons, Ibstone, North End, and on the Ridgway between the A40 and the M40.
The Palker’s believe that if he had passed away his body would have been found and that it is more likely he is surviving in the wild or has been taken.
