A BROKEN-HEARTED family are offering a £1,000 reward for the safe return of their beloved dog, who disappeared in Musselburgh.

Wyzel went missing on January 19 while out for a family walk along the River Esk, near Monktonhall Golf Course.

It is thought that she chased a rabbit and sadly could not find her way back to her owner Emilia Wielgosz, who searched the area but to no avail.

Emilia even enlisted a professional tracker with a drone device to help in the hunt for 12-year-old Wyzel.

Emilia, who lives in the Craigmillar area of Edinburgh, said: “The tracker believed Wyzel was actually spotted in the same area she had gone missing on day two and then again on day 12 by her thermal camera, but there have been no sightings of her since those times, regardless of efforts being made to search the area.

“There is a possibility that Wyzel may have been found or taken because of no sightings in the area since January 30.”

East Lothian Courier: Wyzel

Emilia has put up a £1,000 reward to anyone who can return or find Wyzel (pictured above) in a safe condition.

“Any information would be appreciated,” stressed Emilia, who moved to Edinburgh from Poland eight years ago.

The family have had Wyzel since she was one. She is a small/medium build dog, tan in colour, with a white chest area and small white sock on her left front paw.

Emilia said: “She may be mistaken for a fox if she is still out there surviving on her own. She is chipped and 12 years of age, so really needs to be found so that she can live her twilight years with her family.”

She added: “If you have seen my Wyzel or found her and taken her in then please get in touch; we need her home as this is breaking our hearts.”

Anyone with information should contact Emilia on 07450 286217.
