Inspector Steve Kent of the Maidstone Community Safety Unit said: ‘The loss of a pet has a devastating effect on victims and our officers will pursue all potential lines of enquiry to recover a dog.
‘Daisy is a rescue dog who had been taken in by two pensioners. It is very sad that she has suddenly been snatched from her new and loving family and we want to get her back.
‘The investigation into this incident is continuing and we are urging anybody with information to call our appeal line.
‘We would also like to hear from anyone with CCTV or dashcam footage that shows the white truck travelling from the A20, and then through the village between 8.30am and 9am on 18 January.’
