Please Support:

Chris, there was a map of the location where the boat sank in the Plymouth Herald article posted in this link in case this of help:
This one is up in leeds but still worth comparing.

Do we know if he had a doggie life vest on?
Chris i echo what Selina has said - the more posters the better everywhere in the coastal areas as soon as possible would be brilliant please - we seem to be struggling to get any volunteers at the moment sadly.
DogLostSelina-Area co-ordinator South Devon.
Karen yes please poster this area, if you could join Donnie Facebook page and post on the poster topic saying you are doing this area we would be very grateful. We need to do all along the coastline.
Thankyou Chris - I have posted your Comments/question to Admin on Donnie's page
Hi.Karen. there is nothing on Donnie's Facebook page which says He has been Found
the page was set up by - quote - This page has been set up by two of the local area helpers for Doglost and all advice has been given about who to contact and we will be supporting Sheralee and her family all we can.

1 mile or 4 miles off Penlee Point (nr Rame Head?)? When exactly? What tides/wind/currents? Is it worth us going out postering our area which is to the east of Plymouth Soud (Heyrook Bay, Wembury and Newton Ferrers)? It's a lot of work and time but it has to be realistic - need better info please
