The family of a puppy stolen in Cornwall are urging people not to 'hide someone else's secret lies' a month after Waffle was taken.

The six-month-old Labradoodle was snatched during a morning walk in St Austell just two days before Christmas.

His owner Catherine Hussain believes the man who took her dog pulled out a knife.

A string of appeals have been shared via social media thousands of times as police investigate what happened.

Waffle's owners say officers have been inundated with calls and possible sightings.

Now, exactly a month since he was stolen on the 23rd December, they are pleading for anyone with any information at all to come forward.

A new poster is reassuring people that any information shared will be kept in the strictest of confidence.

"Waffle is still missing.

"Someone somewhere knows where he is.

"Please do the right thing and let him go home, it doesn’t matter how far from home he is, we will come and get him, JUST LET HIM GO HOME !!!

"PLEASE SHARE,SHARE AND SHARE AGAIN, keep WAFFLE’S face all over Facebook."

"The family of Waffle are very distraught and upset at the callous theft of their pet dog.  

"Myself and all of the officers at the police station dealing with this crime also feel very sad for the family over what is a cruel and mean-spirited crime, especially during the Christmas period.  

"I am sure that someone, somewhere knows of a friend, relative or neighbour that has suddenly come into possession of a dog that may be Waffle. 

"Please contact us if you have any suspicions."
