Bear will be missing six weeks tomorrow (Wednesday).

Today (Tuesday) is National Love Your Pet Day - but for one family it marks more as a painful reminder that they are still without their beloved dog six weeks on.

Catherine Bamber has reissued a video appeal for the safe return of the family's black and tan Lakeland Terrier Bear who went missing on Wednesday, January 10.

He was last seen Inskip, Preston-Pinfold Lane Moss Lane area around 10.30am-11am. Clutching a missing picture of Bear, which offers a £1,000 reward, she said: "It's six weeks tomorrow since Bear went missing.

"We have searched high and low and had the drones out but there has been no positive sightings at all.

"We believe now he was taken on that first day and are appealing for fresh information.

"There was a white tanker that was parked up on Pinfold Lane that day and we are asking the driver to get in touch to ask did they see Bear? Did they pick him up?"
