Missing cat found almost 500 miles from home

A cat who went missing from his home in Brockley turned up 450 miles away in Fife, Scotland after his owners had given up the search thinking he was dead.

The Daily Mail reports that nine-year-old Pablo was reunited with his owners when he turned up in a branch of TSB in the Scottish county and settled down for a nap on one of the chairs.

Staff handed him to a cats charity where he was checked for a microchip and his owners were found. How he made the epic journey remains a mystery, however.

This was a terrifying attack which occurred in the middle of the day and left both victims traumatised. We are looking for five men, they are described as black, wearing balaclavas, gloves and dark clothing.

One of the suspects was wearing a green camouflage jacket. I'm convinced that someone in the local area has seen or heard something that could assist us with our investigation.

I would encourage anyone who has information to speak to our incident room as soon as possible.
