A Brit couple has gone to extraordinary lengths to find their missing dog.

Jon and Shelley Haggerwood have taken time off work, bought vision goggles and even hired psychic investigators to track down Jacob that disappeared in January after chasing deer.

The couple is so desperate to find their missing 1,200-pound bracco Italian Hound they have made an appeal for information on Radio 1 and even taken to the skies.

"He just disappeared off the face of the earth. I think he was so excited by the deer he just lost his way,” the Telegraph quoted Jon, as saying.

"My worst fear is that he is lying injured somewhere and we cannot get to him. We have tried so many things its heartbreaking," he added.

The Haggerwoods have given up 3,000 pounds in wages after taking two weeks unpaid leave to conduct the search.

They have also spent 200 pounds on night vision goggles and 50 pound on leaflets appealing for help.

The pilot based at Audley End airfield flew them over the sea at 1,000 feet but they still could not spot their beloved pet.

"People have been so kind trying to help but its like hitting a brick wall." Haggerwood said.

In desperation, the couple even turned to psychics for help.

Haggerwood added: "One told us that she had spoken with Jacob, who said he was "OK and trying to make his way home." He said he had just wanted to go on an adventure. He is still alive and wants to get back."
