Last week, North Yorkshire Police asked for the public’s help to reunite a stolen dog with his frantically worried family.
Archie, the seven-year-old red cocker spaniel was taken in a burglary at his home in the Leyburn area during the early hours of Friday 8 April.
Entry was forced into an outbuilding and the suspects left with the much-loved dog at sometime between 1am and 6am.
The force has confirmed today that the stolen dog was reunited with his delighted family over the weekend.
Officers have thanked everyone, including the media, who shared their appeal to help reunite Archie with his family and said that “Your support makes all the difference with our appeals”.
In the meantime, the force’s investigation is still ongoing to establish the full circumstances surrounding the burglary and they’re not able to share any further details at this stage.
If you have any information that can help their investigation, please email [email protected] or call 101.
You can also contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or via their website.
Please quote reference number 12220059137 when providing details.
