A group of pet detectives have been called in to investigate the disappearance of a Cheam cat

Animal Search UK’s Pet Detective Search Team are helping cat owner Penny Tozer whose cat, Soxi, recently went missing from his home.

Lead investigator Andrew McNair said, “Most missing pets are found within a mile of home – the challenge is making sure that as many people as possible know the pet is missing and encourage everyone to be vigilant and to keep an eye out.”

“Work and family commitments often mean owners don’t have time to devote scouring the area looking for their missing pet, and this is why Animal Search UK is a huge help.

"Visiting neighbours can also be daunting so the team have the expertise to search gardens, garages and outbuildings in order to conduct a thorough search.

"Our professional, uniformed specialist search teams can usually be at any location in the UK within 48 hours.”
