Rambo, a French Bulldog, was swept down the river at Hampton Loade, near Bridgnorth, on Thursday, April 6.

The small dog was taken downstream, before an unconfirmed sighting out of the river in a field near Alveley at around 4.30pm, where he was reportedly chasing ducks into the Severn.

Now, pet locators Missing Pets GB and Doglost are appealing for help after drone pilots failed to find the dog.

Missing Pets GB said in a statement on Twitter: "Someone must know the man whom Rambo followed and allegedly saw him chase ducks into the river.

"Please get in touch, we need to know where Rambo is, he's such an adorable puppy and his family are heartbroken."

Rambo is a young adult male French Bulldog, tan in colour with a white strip down his nose.
