TWO dogs specially trained to locate bodies and human remains have been brought to Jersey to help in the search for missing Islander Thomas Frost.
The 51-year-old has not been seen since leaving his parents’ house at L’Etacq on the night of Saturday 11 February.
The victim-recovery dogs arrived with their handlers from Avon and Somerset Police last Friday and conducted searches over the weekend in eight areas that were identified in the States police’s search strategy.
The areas included woods at Grève de Lecq and around Val de la Mare reservoir. Despite extensive searches, the dogs, which had been requested as part of the mutual-aid agreement, were unable to find Mr Frost and returned to the UK on Monday. Extensive land, sea and air-based searches have been carried out for Mr Frost, who is believed to have left his parents’ house barefoot.
Specialist divers have also searched Vale de la Mare reservoir and other bodies of water. Anyone with information is being asked to phone the States police on 612612, option 2, option 4.
