Ellie and her family are appealing to anyone who may have dash-cam footage or house surveillance in Longridge around 8.45am to 9.15am on Wednesday morning in attempts to find the French Bulldog.


A search party walk has also been arranged as the disappearance of Nelly has sparked concern in the community. Ellie is pleading with Longridge residents to ‘bring Nelly home’ and help her in the search for the small dog at 6pm Thursday 1 April.

Arranged search walk to find missing French Bulldog

Charlie Aston, friend to Ellie has said: “A lot of people are asking if she got out the garden or was stolen. At this point we do not know but we need to cover all bases.

“Searching the area thoroughly will help if she has wandered but also keep sharing her and raising Nelly’s awareness will make her too hot to handle if someone has taken her.”

The family have advised searchers to avoid approaching Nelly at speed if she is spotted, to keep eyes on her and call the number provided.
