A springer rescue dog whose disappearance sparked a major social media campaign last month has been found dead in a river close to his disappearance.
Speaking to Causeway Coast Community this morning an emotional Jen Rountree said
“Milo was found in a river in the Drumaheglis area on Saturday by my dad. I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and kind words during the last month. There were people who went out of their way to find milo and people who messaged me with suggestions, possible sightings and words of kindness. You will never know how touched and overwhelmed my family and I were by the response of the public. It will never be forgotten.”
“I would also like to say a special thanks to the Causeway Search & Rescue team who came out to help get Milo out of the water. They wouldn’t let dad stay to see Milo as it was a quite an emotional time and they buried him later in Drumaheglis. The rescue team then came to our house with his collar and harness. They said that Milo looked the same as when he went missing. He was at peace.”
