Actor Keith Duffy breathed a massive sigh of relief this evening - when his daughter's companion dog was found after it had been feared stolen.

Lenny went missing between 3pm and 4pm this evening in Roganstown in north Dublin.

Duffy took to Twitter to say he that the family dog had been "taken" and he appealed to the public to help locate him.

The star announced just before 8.40pm that Mia's pet had been found, and he thanked everyone who had helped in the search.

In November, the Dubliner, who recently turned 40, was awarded an Honorary Fellowship from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland's Faculty of Nursing and Midwifery in recognition of his work as a campaigner for children with autism.
