A family is upset after their tan, black and white male Beagle dog, who answers to the name Conker, went missing yesterday at about 2.30pm.

Brenda Richards, of Brook Lane, Westbury, is the mother of the dog’s owner, Jane Richards.

Mrs Richards said: “He visited with my daughter from Salisbury.

“He seemed to be having some sort of fit in the garden and suddenly recovered and ran out of the garden, frightened and confused.”

In the evening he was seen near the railway line at Dilton Marsh and also in the West Ashton area later, during the night.

He is wearing black collar with an identity tag.

If anyone has seen Conker they should contact Jane Richards on 07973 701 084 or Charlotte Amos on 07909 694 267.
