Declan said: "She thinks someone must've unclipped it, so she ran around trying to find him. She couldn't find him, her sister did a Facebook post which has been quite widely shared which we're grateful for."Some more information has come to light that he was seen by two separate people at about 12:10pm, just ten minutes after the incident, around Pennycomequick roundabout."One person reported seeing a dog in the road and they were driving towards town and another person said they'd seen a man with two females holding the dog by its collar matching Harry's description walking down the road."Declan says that Jenny is "distraught"."She's in pieces without him. The dog is her absolute world. She has a tattoo on her leg of him and he's just her world. He means everything to me but to her it's another level."
