Amazing effort to find best friend who went missing

ELIZABETH Tom from One Mile has two best friends, their names are Charlie and Mack.

Both are dogs and her life has revolved around her trusted companions for almost a decade.

Unfortunatelty her peaceful world was thrown into chaos on February 1 when someone entered her yard and left the gate open allowing Charlie to run off.

"She is more than a dog to me, I love her like she was my child," Elizabeth said.

"Charlie was the runt of a litter and the breeder was going to put her down before I stepped in to save her life. I had been looking around for a dog after my therapist suggested a companion dog would be good for me.

"She was so right, but now she is gone and I am worried I'll never see her again."

Elizabeth's passion for her missing dog has resulted in an amazing campaign to find the small Staffy/Ridgeback cross.

Elizabeth printed off 2000 lost dog phamplets and walked the neighbourhood putting them in letterboxes.

She then backed that up by producing 200 posters and these have been put up around Ipswich.

Charlie has been sighted twice, once near the Ipswich Hospital and the other time close to the BMX track.

Each night Elizabeth goes out walking looking for her dog.

She has posted a $500 cash reward for her dog and can be contacted on 0427 403 552.
