Roxy and Lexi are safely back with their owner after going missing yesterday

There was unbridled relief for one Longford family last night following the successful return of their two beloved pet dogs just hours after the pair mysteriously went missing.

The alarm surrounding the Jack Russell and Border Collie's disappearance was raised last night via social media.

Through a post on Facebook, the pair's owner appealed to friends and fellow Facebook users in a bid to track down Roxy and Lexi.

The Leader also got in on the act and after the matter was reported to gardaí, both were successfully reported back home a short time later.
