Drones, volunteers and thousands of posters are being used in the hunt for a missing shy dog lost in the countryside near Leicester.
Konnie, a miniature schnauzer, escaped from a garden in Broome Avenue, East Goscote, back on September 12 and ran off towards Queniborough.
She was last spotted in fields between Queniborough and South Croxton later the same day at about 1.30pm.
The national charity Harvey's Army have been helping the distraught owners and have supplied drone equipment to assist in the search along with 1,000 A4 posters and 10,000 A5 Fliers.
The drones use themal imaging cameras to hunt for any sign of the missing pooch.
Unfortunately, despite several searches of the area, there have been no sightings since.
There are fears Konnie could have been picked up by someone.
Anyone spotting Konnie is urged not to try to catch her but instead to call Harvey's Army confidentially on 07833 727 975.
