A rescue dog which went missing after it was brought from Crete to Sheffield has been spotted - two weeks after he vanished.

Tyson, a labrador cross, escaped from Luna Croft, Charnock, on Wednesday, November 23 after he jumped over a 7ft gate.

He was rescued from the streets of Crete and brought to Sheffield by the charity Cretan Animal Protection, but ran off shortly after arriving at a foster carer's.

An army of volunteers has spent the last two weeks searching for Tyson and last night he was spotted at the HSBC sports fields off Limb Lane, between Dore and Whirlow.

The thin and frightened dog ate food left for him but disappeared before he could be captured.

Volunteers lit barbecues in the area hoping that the smell of food would tempt the dog back to the same area.

They returned at 6am this morning to resume the search.
