AN IRVINE dog missing since Thursday has still not be found.

Nathan Primrose says his black Tibetan terrier Stan bolted from Irvine Beach Park on Thursday afternoon and was last seen running between Rockware and the Maritime Museum heading towards Victoria Park.

He has not been seen since and his family are desperately worried about the frightened dog.

Stan, who lives with Nathan's mum Eve, is new to the family and Nathan says he is a timid and frightened little rescue dog.

He said: "Stan has only been with us for a few weeks and he is very scared. He doesn't even respond to dog treats becasue he's never had any.

Stan is fully chipped and should still have two leads attached to him.

Nathan added: "He had 10ft of leads attached to him when he ran. Even if he has chewed through him, he will still have around 2m on him.

"Everyone has been wonderful already and we can't thank them enough. Please keep looking out for him. We just want to bring him home."
