Family "heartbroken" after missing dog found drowned on beach

Family "heartbroken" after missing dog found drowned on beach

Published by Sarah Yeoman at 2:57pm 4th October 2019. (Updated at 4:06pm 4th October 2019)

A dog that went missing in Cornwall has tragically been found drowned on a beach.

A big appeal went out last week to try and find Olive, after she disappeared between Porthleven and Loe Bar.

Searches were carried out for five days, but sadly she was discovered drowned on Porthleven beach.

Her owner, Steve Trethowan, paid tribute on Facebook and says the family has been left "broken".

"Sadly we’ve found our girl Olive. She is deceased but we have her home from the sea.

"Thank you to all who have tirelessly helped us through the past 5 days; Your warmth, generosity, support and contribution has truly blown us away and my faith in humanity is fully restored. I always knew we were from a special part of the world but to witness the effort has been something else.

"RIP Olive, you were a beautiful girl, loyal, an extremely loved lady and will be missed tremendously. We are truly broken, please share this post, as we’re still getting messages of support and help... stand down Olives soldiers."

Steve Trethowan, owner
