The owner of a popular Herne Hill florists has appealed to Brixton Blog readers to help find her beloved dog, Dot.
Elaine says that Dot, pictured above, was last seen around Herne Hill rail station on Wednesday (January 29) and has launched a widespread campaign to get her back.
She believes that the dog may have wondered on to the train tracks, or even boarded a train at the station. On Saturday Elaine told the Blog that Network Rail had refused to look at CCTV footage from the station for signs of Dot.
A campaign has been launched calling on Network Rail to release the footage from Herne Hill Station and an online petition has been signed by 116 people.
The petition, set up by Melanie Byrne, says:
Meet Dot……she is our local community dog, loved by all in the Herne Hill area. She went missing on Wednesday and was last seen on platform one at Herne Hill Train Station.
We need Southeastern Railways and Network Rail to agree to release the cc footage, so we can at least see if she accidentally got on a train……..so far both have been unhelpful.
They have the tools to help, but not the inclination….we need to get her back! Please tweet, share and do all you can and use #letsfinddot Please also include @networkrail and @btp_uk and @se_railways so they know we care.
Loosing Dot will have a big imact on our local community and especially our children in the area, we just want to rule out one option that she accidently got on a train. We need your support.#letsfinddot.
Anyone who may have seen the dog can call Elaine directly on 0207 733 2525.
