South Essex: Have You Seen Stolen Jack?
A Billericay family have been left devastated after their nine-month-old Jack Russell was stolen by two men.
The puppy, called Jack, was out for a walk with his family in Elizabeth Way in Basildon at 2.30pm on Wednesday June 6th. He was playing off the lead when two men picked him up and ran off.
Jack is white all over, with several patches of light brown and the big patch of brown on his back looks heart shaped. He was wearing a camouflage collar and also has a pink mark on his nose.
Investigating officer, Pc Jodie Kinsley, said: "This is an absolute tragedy for Jack's family, and any dog lover will know that dogs are part of the family, and the victim and her children have been left heartbroken by someone stealing Jack.
"I urge everyone to take a good look at the description and picture and let us know if they have seen Jack. Has anyone you know recently got a puppy? If you know anything I appeal to your conscience to call us immediately so he can be returned to his family."
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Pc Jodie Kinsley at the Basildon area investigation team on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
