UPDATE: Toobs has now been found. Read the full story here

A dog has gone missing after falling overboard from a boat sailing off the coast of Falmouth and St Mawes last night.

Owner Wayne Booth has now appealed for people to help find short-haired border collie Toobs - also known as Joanah - who he believes may have swum to shore and is now lost.

He said: "A huge police and coastguard search on land and sea, using thermal imaging, went on until the early hours of this morning, but found nothing.

Falmouth Packet:

Toobs is a short-haired boarder collie

"We believe that she could quite easily have made it ashore as she had been known to swim over a mile at a time.
