A family are desperate to find a five-month-old puppy which has gone missing in Prestonpans.

The lemon sprocker spaniel named Maggie went missing in the area on Tuesday 11 February at approximately 4:30pm after she was spooked by other dogs at Wrigley Terrace park.

When Maggie got the fright, she ran off towards Redburn Road with a retractable lead attached at the time of last sighting.

Jennifer McIvor made an appeal for help on Tuesday.

She said: "Can everyone please look in their gardens, under their bushes, etc...She could be anywhere hiding.

"Anyone in Prestonpans seen this five-month-old pup? Auntie has lost her at park.

Maggie belongs to Jennifer's auntie

"Has a pink tag on with a contact number on it. Name is Maggie, still has lead attached to her."

Since Maggie went missing, Jennifer has informed 'all appropriate people' and a search has been carried out where a possible sighting was made, however nothing came of it.

In her Facebook post she added: "There have not been any successful sightings which I find odd.

"Please can we check our gardens once more, and shrubs be pulled back, if you know a neighbour isn’t in can we check there too?"

Anyone with information connected to Maggie can let Jennifer and her family know on their Help find Maggie Facebook group.
