FOR more than two weeks Brown the missing maremma dog has been in Blayney following her 200 kilometre long trek from the Blue Mountains.

Since Brown went missing from Hazlebrook on April 22 communities from there to the Central West have been keen to reunite the dog with its owner.

Brown was first spotted in Blayney on August 17 and was most recently sighted on the evening of Wednesday, September 2.

The dog's owner, Carol Bertram, said unfortunately Brown is scared due to her upbringing on a farm and having had little contact with people, so until now the pooch has managed to avoid being caught since she went missing.

"I'm trying to find a darter who can stay in Blayney because with the other guy [darter from Bathurst] by the time he gets there she's gone," she said.

Thanks to continual sightings by the Blayney community, Ms Bertram said they've worked out Brown's regular path around the town.

"I'm just trying to get her home, it's been a long few months," she said.

Community members keen to help Brown and her owner reunite have set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the ongoing costs of trying to capture the dog.

"I've just received a bill for $1020 from the man who tried to cage trap her in Cullen Bullen and the darter has been out four times [from Bathurst to Blayney] and I haven't got his bill yet," Ms Bertram said.

Brown is the size of a German shepherd and is white in colour.
