A family has launched a poster campaign in a bid to find its blue Staffordshire bull terrier who went missing in North Bay, Scarborough.

The Tarrants , who live in the Cloughton area, have put appeals in North Marine Road, along foreshore, the Old Town and castle area.

They also targeted Eastfield after eight-month-old Gracie – who has distinctive white paws and chest – was seen in Seamer Road.

There is a £1,000 reward for anyone offering information that leads to the blue Staffy’s return.

“We just want our dog back,” said retired care worker Carolyn Tarrant, who has also set up a Facebook appeal.

Gracie went missing on November 25 when Carolyn and her husband Brett were walking the dog and their other Staffordshire bull terriers Stella and Buster on the beach in front of the Oasis cafe. It was Gracie’s first time on the beach and Mrs Tarrant believes she may have been frightened and run off.

“We have been out every day looking for Gracie. People have phoned us with sightings but by the time we get to the location, there has been no sign of her,” said Mrs Tarrant. “People, even those we don’t know, have been so kind and helpful.”

Anyone who sees Gracie or has information about its whereabouts should call: 0771 8123705; 0784 6422976 or (01723) 503627
