A worried dog owner believes her missing pet may be hiding somewhere after being hit by a train.
Nicola Campbell is appealing for the public's help to locate Grace who escaped from her home on Tuesday night at about 10.30pm.
She says she has been told by a member of staff at Maidenhead station that a driver reported his train hitting a dog as it travelled to Marlow. On the way back the same driver saw the same dog on the tracks and slowed the train down to follow it into the station.
Nicola was told a jogger had previously seen the grey Weimaraner run into Kidwells Park and then up the A4 but was unable to catch her.
Nicola says her pet is a rescue dog and of a 'nervous disposition' so will run away when approached by a stranger.
She believes Grace may already have passed away from her injuries but is desperate to find out what has happened to her.
She said: "It's days since she was injured so she may well have died but I'd just like that confirmation of what has happened to her.
"She may have hidden away somewhere so if anyone sees her please call me."
Nicola can be contacted on 07774 279678.
A spokesman for First Great Western said he was unaware of any reports of a dog being hit by a train in the area.
