Police appeal to find missing Quinn

Police appeal to anyone to get in touch via the 101 number if they have information about a dog that was in a car when it was stolen.

“If you see a dog matching Quinn’s description, please get in touch with the police as a matter of urgency so that he can be returned to his owner.

“We do not know where the thief left Quinn. He could be anywhere between West Tanfield and Harrogate. It is possible that the Cocker Spaniel is still in the car, if this is the case Quinn may be in need of medical attention.

“I am also keen to speak to anyone who can help locate the stolen Mondeo and ask them to get in touch.”

– Detective Constable Karen Barugh, of Northallerton CID
