Missing cocker spaniel Luckie.

Hundreds of people have been involved in the search for Luckie, a male black and tan cocker spaniel.

They have not given up hope of finding the microchipped dog, which escaped from the pet holding area on a DFDS ferry docked at the Port of Tyne ferry terminal on December 21.

Unfortunately, his family departed on the Princess Seaways on its trip to Amsterdam as they headed home to Poland for Christmas.

Regular searches have taken place in the area, expanded to include Whitley Bay, Shiremoor and Wallsend.

Now people involved in the Help Find Lucky group are holding a walk on Sunday at Tynemouth Longsands, meeting at the bottom of the ramp outside Crusoe’s cafe.

Members of the group will light candles at the entrance to the Port of Tyne Ferry Terminal at noon, before the walk takes place from 1pm to 2pm.

Dog owners and those without dogs are welcome to take part.

A spokesperson for the group said: “Why not honour a very brave and sad little boy, who remains missing but very much loved, by coming on our walk?”
