Frances, from Troon, Ayrshire, was cooking dinner when she turned around to find her two-year-old puppy was missing.

A dedicated Facebook page – Skye Stolen – reports that paddlers saw two men “taking a small brown dog on a speedboat and leaving the island”.

Cops are now investigating the dog theft.

Asked if she thinks Skye was stolen and not just lost, Frances replied: “100%, without a doubt, she was taken.

“The island has been searched twice. She is afraid of her shadow.

“When I was training her I was playing hide and seek to test her, when she realized I was out of her reach she would sniff her way to where I was hiding – always.”

Skye is visually impaired and has medical issues, but is microchipped and sterilized.

When caught, the dog was wearing a pink and white striped collar with two tags, one reading “fur ever yours”.
