A woman is desperately appealing for information after her dog went missing in Ardrossan this morning, January 12.

Pamela Macpherson's dog, Fowler, was last seen on Dalry Road at around 7.30am this morning after he slipped loose from his harness.

He headed towards Stanley Court, near Stanley Primary, which is where he was last sighted, but disappeared thereafter and has not been seen since.

The six-month-old cockapoo is an apricot colour and is described as being "friendly" but "fast". He is also microchipped.

Owner Pamela said: "He was out for a walk with my partner when he slipped his harness. He went to start walking but must've thought, I can start running here, and so ran off down Dalry Road towards the houses at Stanley Court.

"We've been out walking since 7am and the support from members of the public has been amazing. Hundreds of people have been out looking and putting up posters and one gentleman who works for the navy even came with a drone. He went over all the areas we walk the dog and exhausted every avenue but couldn't see him."

Pamela assures that the police and dog warden have been notified of Fowler's disappearance but is encouraging locals to share the appeal for him far and wide.

She continued: "We took his collar off last night and put it over the radiator to dry so he hasn't got that on.

"He's microchipped and up to date on the microchip system as lost. The police have been notified as well as the dog warden and every agency we could think of, even Scotrail. 

"He must be close. He's so small and fast. I'd only ask that if anyone sees him, don't run at him, he will come over to you. He's so friendly.

"I'm just worried now as it's starting to get dark and it's so cold so if anyone could help, it would be much appreciated."
