A puppy has been reported as stolen from a Romford family, which is asking the community to help find her.
Owner Aisha Wajid told this paper that after she had put golden retriever Simmi up for sale online, a man and young boy turned up to buy her.
However, she said they ran off with the puppy without transferring the agreed £2,200 payment.
The police were called to Heather Glen at around 10pm on July 2.
Aisha had bought Simmi and another puppy three weeks before, but couldn't cope as she and her partner both worked full time.
She explained the dogs were her first pets, and it was "too much" to handle both dogs.
"It's very sad because we wanted to sell Simmi to a good family," she added.
