A FAMILY’S beloved pet dog who they feared had been stolen has been returned.
Paul and Jackie Dabell’s prized pet Milo disappeared while the family were out on a walk with their neighbours on Sunday.
But the pair, who live in Benholm near Montrose, feared he had been taken after receiving a phonecall from a woman claiming to have found him, and promising his safe return.
But they heard nothing from her for more than 72 hours and launched an internet appeal to trace Milo.
But today Paul and Jackie said Milo had been returned after they received another call to say he was in Stonehaven.
