Emma Bunton shares ‘terrible news’ as her dog is found dead in Barnet

Emma Bunton has been left “devastated” after her pet Labrador, Phoebe, was found dead in a Barnet park.

The chocolate Labrador went missing during a walk in Trent Park, Hadley Wood, on Monday (04.02.13).

The Spice Girl wrote on Twitter: “To all the amazing people who supported us at this horrible time our precious phoebe has been found and its terrible news, we are devastated (sic)”.

Bunton pleaded with fans on the social networking site to help her find the missing pet earlier this week and garnered support from celebrities including bandmate Geri Halliwell, Perez Hilton and Myleene Klass.

Bunton tweeted previously: “My gorgeous brown Labrador went missing on daily walk, she will be so scared please look out around east barnet, Hadley wood, Trent park

“Her name is phoebe!! She is so gentle, please look out for her.

“I’m in bits, thank you for all your reassuring messages! Please keep looking (sic)”

The 37-year-old star was still on the lookout for the pooch earlier today (06.02.13) and even offered a reward for her return before learning of Phoebe’s tragic fate.

She wrote: “Please help #findphoebe still looking!!! My beautiful chocolate Labrador. REWARD. (sic)”
