Search operation launched after dog goes missing on walk in Gwynedd

North Wales news and information

A search operation has been launched to find a dog that went missing while on a walk in Gwynedd.

The 14-year-old border collie called Charlie disappeared on a regular walk with his owner above Dyfi Bike Park, near Pantperthog Mines, on Friday.

He has not been seen since, despite extensive searching by his owners, friends and well-wishers.

Members of the Aberdyfi Search and Rescue Team went up to a quarry on the slopes of Tarren y Gesail yesterday, close to where he went missing.

Rope technicians carried out a thorough search both around and inside the quarry and said they felt confident that the area can be ruled out of the search.

The team said: “It is a dangerous area, so we now ask people who are out helping in the search to give this spot a wide berth.

“Many thanks and fingers crossed that Charlie turns up looking for his dinner very soon.”

It’s understood that more searches are planned nearby today.
