This is Gloucestershire reported yesterday how internationally-famed actress and model, Elizabeth Hurley, got behind the Twitter campaign to find Smudge, who went missing from Rectory Farm showjumping arena at Duntisbourne Abbots, Cirencester, on Tuesday.
Smudge's desperate owner, James Buse of Cirencester, blitzed the online social networking service with tweets in a bid to help find his much-loved pet, and dozens of people joined in the Twitter campaign to help in his frantic search.

Charlie also tweeted this fabulous picture of a tired but very content-looking Smudge, relaxing at home in his basket.
