"I am appealing for witnesses and anyone with information as to where Tilly may be to contact me in confidence.

"As part of my investigations, I am now able to release a CCTV image of the suspect with Tilly in Weymouth town centre. I would urge anyone who recognises this man to make contact with Dorset Police."

The offender is described as white, of slim build and was wearing a black woollen hat, a grey hooded top and a dark jacket.
