THE OWNER of a pet raccoon which is still missing from her Hucknall home says he is refusing to give up hope.

Elmo, who has featured several times in the Dispatch, escaped from her enclosure at a house on Yorke Street in the early hours of Saturday June 4.

Appeals made through the pages of the Dispatch and also Facebook for help to trace Elmo have so far failed to bring results.

But owner Joe Coupe says he is sure her “natural instincts” will kick in and she will be able to survive.

Anyone who spots Elmo is asked to call Joe on 07540 974699.
