A DOG lover left devastated when her beloved pet went missing for weeks on end was overjoyed this week when the prized pooch was found and returned home.
Corinthia Graham even recruited a drone pilot to help the hunt for her white miniature schnauzer, Angel (pictured), who went missing from her garden in Edlington Lane, Warmsworth, on October 6.
Corinthia and her friend Annette Frost-Ward conducted daily searches in the Warmsworth and Edlington areas and nearby woods and made appeals on more than 20 Facebook groups, as well this website.
They even called in Lincolnshire-based Drone SAR For Lost Dogs UK to scour the landscape from the air.
But in the end Angel was found on Ferry Boat Lane in Mexborough — more than five miles from home — and returned home on Monday after her photo was shared online.
Annette, who owns Angel’s mother, said: “We did nothing but cry last night but it was tears of joy.
“We can’t thank everyone who has been out looking for her enough. People have shared our appeal all over the country.
“We’re both so glad to have her back.”
Annette, of Edlington, said Angel (pictured below after being found) had lost a large amount of weight but was otherwise unharmed.
“She was jumping from lap to lap on Monday — she just wanted to be loved,” said Annette.
“We can’t thank everyone enough for their help. That’s why she’s home.”
