The owner of a dog which went missing after bolting from Hampstead Heath has thanked everyone who helped in the search after the body of her “best friend” was found.
The seven-year-old black labrador, named Dizzee, went missing around lunchtime on Tuesday, October 24 after bolting from a dog walker’s van in the East Heath Road car park of Hampstead Heath.
Speaking soon afterwards owner Frances Howard said: “It was very unlike her. It’s devastating. I’ve lost my best friend.”
Miss Howard said Dizzee – named after hip hop artist Dizzee Rascal – had made a failed bid to get to her Camden Road home after a member of the public spotted a dog on train tracks in Kentish Town.
The 29-year-old took time off from her marketing job to search for her beloved pet with the public helping by posting on social media and putting up posters.
Dizzee’s body was found on Saturday.
Miss Howard said she felt incredibly grateful to everyone who helped in the search, shared posts and put up posters.
