HOPEFUL SEARCH: Dunedin woman Deborah Baird was in Invercargill yesterday searching for her family’s dog, which has been missing for two months.

Deborah Baird and Angelique Johnson were canvassing the city for their 12-year-old Siberian husky, Valhalla.

Armed with hope and 3000 flyers, members of the family hit the streets of Invercargill, hoping to find Valhalla.

Valhalla went missing at Long Beach, near Dunedin, two months ago and after exhaustive searching of their home town, the family has extended its search further south.

The family has spent thousands of dollars on petrol, advertising, flyers and toll calls in the search.

Ms Baird said she receieved an anonymous tipoff that Valhalla could be in Southland.

She also spoke to Sensing Murder psychic Kevin Cruickshank, who told her to look in Invercargill.

Despite several false leads having disapointed, the family would not be giving up on the search, she said.

“She’s a family member … we love her.

“You can’t give up,” she said.

“We just want her back, there’s no questions asked,” Ms Johnson said.

The family was also offering a $1000 reward for information that leads to the recovery of Valhalla.
