AN appeal has gone out tonight for help to track down a playful Jack Russell terrier who went missing during a walk in the national park at Muckross this Monday.

Answering to the name Alfie, he became spooked when his eye got stuck in something and ran off shortly after 12 noon.

His owner searched long and hard for Alfie and in the Dinis Cottage area but there was no trace of him.
