A family from Nailsworth are desperate to find their dog Moth, who police believe may have been stolen.

Henry Herbert runs a bakery in the town and had Moth with him during the afternoon of Thursday 8 July.

Gloucestershire Police believe the five-month-old puppy may have been stolen after escaping from the bakery that the afternoon.

Moth was seen in the car park of Morrisons on George Street at around 3:30pm.

CCTV enquiries at the supermarket show two people in a blue transit van with the dog.

Moth was wearing a collar and had his lead attached.

Moth is a young Lurcher Brindal and beige in colour.

Henry and Jess Herbert are calling for the public's help to find Moth.

They said: "He is a very calm, timid, loyal and sweet dog. A most loved pet. He is so important to our family. We are desperate to get him back."
