Sandra Bullock's husband has hired a pet detective to find their missing dog.

The 'Blind Side' actress and her biker spouse Jesse James - who wed in 2005 - are so distraught their beloved pet dog Cinnabun is missing, they have enlisted the help of a pet recovery service.

Colleen Busch, from pet detective agency Find Toto, told website E! Online: "I'm in contact with Sandra and Jesse all day. We've been going back and forth checking on tips."

As well as hiring a detective, the couple have started an online campaign to raise awareness of The Missing mutt and help bring her home safely after she went missing from their home in Seal Beach, California, on Monday (25.01.10).

In a plea for information, Jesse - who runs West Coast Choppers motorcycle company - wrote on the company's website: "We've had a few leads, but all dead ends so far, but the search is still definitely on. She's a great little dog, and we want to find her as soon as possible.

"Please keep your eyes out for our little gal, she's a light brown and white pit bull, 9 months old, cropped ears, full tail, hazel eyes. Last seen wearing a large pink collar near West Coast Choppers and Cisco Burger on Anaheim St./710 Freeway in Long Beach."

Jesse also offered a $2,000 reward to anyone who safely returns the pooch.

This is not the first time a celebrity has hired a pet detective to find a missing beloved animal.

Last year, Jessica Simpson also telephoned Find Toto after her dog Daisy was snatched by a coyote. Sadly the Maltipoo was never found.
