The family of a missing dog who vanished after slipping her lead near Mochrum continues the hunt for her one year on.

Skye went missing when out with Carol and Luke Sinclair who were holidaying in the Machars from Greater Manchester last October.

A huge hunt began almost immediately to retrieve the timid rescue collie and despite numerous sightings all over Galloway, no one has been able to coax her home to her distraught family.

Carol, along with family and friends, have been travelling to Galloway in between work shifts in England to continue the hunt.

They have been cooking, scenting, leaving trails of items from home and keeping a vigil in the area Skye vanished.

Carol said this week: “The past 12 months have been an emotional rollercoaster and our lives are on hold.

“Our lives totally revolve around our search for our very special, precious girl. This has been one of the worst experiences of my life. But we are very proud of Skye – she has managed to stay alive so far. She is clever and resilient. She will be more than a handful when she is back home.”

Carol offered thanks to the people helping with the search and the 4,400 supporters on the Find Skye Facebook page who continue to offer sightings and suggestions.

Carol added: “All of us together will bring our baby girl home safely. We will never give up. We will do what ever it takes.”
