A DISTRAUGHT teenager has appealed for help after her beloved pet dog was stolen from a car.

Alice, a ten-year-old Parson Jack Russell, was stolen from a white Ford Fiesta parked at Double Gates Farm in Upton Snodsbury, near Worcester, between 3.30pm and 5.30pm on Sunday, December 29.

Her owner, 15-year-old Kayleigh Letherbarrow, said Alice is mostly white with a brown spot on her right ear and the right side of her backside.

She said Alice is very energetic and friendly and is offering a reward to anyone who helps to find her.

Kayleigh has asked for anyone with any information to contact your Worcester News reporter Ian Craig on 01905 742 253 or ian.craig@worcesternews.co.uk

Why was a dog left in a car for that length of time? And (presumably/hopefull
y) they left a window open for it, so don't need to be Sherlock to work out what happened.

CJH - A dog of this size will take 28 hours days to consume all of the Oxygen in a sealed car of this size . This car is not an air tight unit , so it would survive indefinitely . What an exceptionally stupid remark to make at this time.

I agree why would you leave a dog in a car for 2 hours? Something sounds a bit rotten in Denmark for me, I have a jack Russell I wouldn't leave it 2 minutes in a car. It was parked at owners home? Why leave it in car?

Thank God, the voice of reason. I am not an animal lover but even I can see that leaving it for (at least) two hours in a car is hardly fair to the dog. I don't see the problem in asking this question. As for Horatio One: "This car is not an air tight unit , so it would survive indefinitely" Indefinitely? Now that IS a stupid remark to make. Does a dog not need food, water, warmth (left outside in an unheated car this weather)? And Dagnasty, are you sulking over that remark you made on the morris dancing story which got you all those negatives? I only left one of them...

Wow. A child has her dog stolen from a car and asks the public for help, yet you chose to throw your hurtful and inconsiderate opinions back at her. Does your life revolve around this website? Turn the computer off and go out.

Like most stories on this site about people's pets getting stolen the only 'evidence' seem to be the owner's claim that it was stolen. Was the window smashed? The door forced open? Or was the car door left unlocked, someone possibly spotted what they thought was a distressed animal, they opened the door and the poor creature ran off? Who knows. But at least stories about foul play always attract far more web hits than ones about someone just unfortunately losing something.
I hope they find the dog soon but I'd put money on the fact they're more likely to find it wandering the streets on its own rather than holed up in an arch criminal's lair somewhere.

Dogs are stolen to be used for bait for fighting or breeding. For gods sake a kid is asking for our help and you post something like this. Lets just help her find it shall we and forget all the nasty comments and bitchy remarks between people who spend far too much time on here comparing votes!!!

Some dogs are stolen and a hell of a lot more just wander off. If you had the capability to understand simple sentences you'd get my point that a distraught owner's claim is not fact. If a crime has been committed, as is being claimed, anyone with information should go to the police (who are not mentioned for some reason and neither is a crime number) and not just get in touch with a reporter on a local rag.

When will people take notice that dogs should not be left in cars, tied up outside supermarkets, tied to seats in the High Street and so on. Dogs are being stolen all around the UK to be used as bait for low lives and their fighting dogs. The parent/s not the 10 year old girl, left her pet alone in a car when newspapers are full of stories of dogs being stolen. You would not leave your precious diamond necklace in the back of a car, or hanging on a sign outside the supermarket. So somebody please tell me why they would leave their much loved pet alone to be stolen. This keeps on happening and it's the dog I feel sorry for.

I have to be honest....if I had noticed a dog shut in a car with no owner anywhere in sight , or food & water, then I'd have removed the dog. Mind you, I would have left a note and, if nothing to leave a note with, would have contacted the police so that they could contact the car owner.
