A family is today appealing for help as they try to find missing Yorkshire Terrier puppy Holly, who escaped from the car she was travelling in after it was involved in a collision with a lorry near Felixstowe.

The incident happened on the A14 near Felixstowe yesterday at about 4.30pm yesterday and caused major delays. Eight-month-old Holly was wearing a collar and had a lead on when she ran away.

The pup’s owners, Terence and Geraldine Manning, of Hadleigh, have now been treated for minor injuries and are desperate for the return of their pet.

The couple’s son, Glenn, said a number of people have already helped with the search for Holly.

He added: “She is a bundle of joy.

“We have not seen anything along the road so we hope she is in a rural area where she can be spotted quite easily.”

The A14 had to be closed for several hours following the incident on the Ipswich-bound carriageway, near the Dock Spur roundabout, on Tuesday.

People living in the area have reported there were still major delays in the town after the incident was cleared up because they were unaware when it had been cleared and were still trying to find an alternative route out of Felixstowe.

Mr and Mrs Manning suffered cuts and bruises in the incident.

If you spot Holly, who has been described as a brown and black Yorkshire Terrier, call Glenn on 01217 117617 or 07972785870.

Holly has now been reunited with her owners, update here

  • Thank you all, for the help. Holly is now home with Mum and Dad and Roly, resting. If anyone that has not followed the Facebook search, and the news real on Heart FM and other stations tries to tell me that this story was not news, then I would like to show them the thousands of posts from elated followers, and invite him to meet them all, to explain how it is not news. By the way, the people that found Holly were Hard working decent people, like most of us get gave struggled through life to keep their heads above water. So Spike, admit you were wrong to criticise the press for thus story, and Man up. News is what the people say it us, not the minority that snipe.

  • Waspie's wife.....I really hope the publicity will help find Holly and reunite her with your family. I'm sure there are a lot more of us with dogs of our own who would be extremely grateful for our local paper to help. I can soon scan down the page to see yet another crime story and dont mind in the least that Holly is the top picture. Look forward to seeing the news she has been found. It worked for Harley the Labrador.

  • Thank-you J, for pointing out what I am sure many people are feeling. My personal view is that the national newspapers are in the business of reporting and debating such issues as the financial hardship of british citizens. It is really heart warming reading stories about real local family issues, like missing animals, and as J, mentions, wouldn't it be wonderful to read in tomorrows Star, of a happy reunion. I am sure Mr Manning did not wish to sound quite as angry, but he, like so many other animal lovers feel very strongly when stories of this nature meet with heartless negative response.

  • I am not heartless, all I am saying is this is not news I have no problem with the subject matter however I do have a problem that this is the top NEWS story ( the second missing dog story in the last couple of days). The content of the article is acceptable but the placement of the article under the heading of news is wrong. My beef is with the journalistic decision to place this story as the main news story. I hope the dog turns up unharmed but when there are so many other news stories which are being ignored on this site I think it is wrong to place a missing dog story in the news section.

  • spike you come across as heartless. This is news that the public can react on and hopefully we can have another happy ending. Thinking of Holly and her owners and hoping for headlines tomorrow of a reunion

  • Spike, this story might not appeal to your thirst for sensational news stories of honest hard working people struggling to pay bills(if that is at all news, either), but what it does do is give hope to those that share in common, humility for their fellow man. Holly means the world to my father and mother and bearing in mind that yesterday he was involved in a near fatal accident, is news in itself. The simple fact that little Holly is out their on her own, has touched the hearts of Thousands, yes thousands of likeminded readers. Why not try to understand the papers decision to put these stories to the forefront of the news page, rather than attempt to be Mr Wit and Prose. By the way, read the story, he is 80, not 12!

  • Read what I wrote again Terrence, it is a story that has a place on this website just not under the news heading. Also grow up, telling me to bring myself and my big mouth round to your house!! How old are you, 12?

  • This is getting ridiculous, over the previous few days we have had (as the top news item) two lost dog stories. There is room on this website for this type of story but it is defiantly not in the news section. There are people who are working hard and still struggling to pay bills, why not focus on that type of story instead of taking the easy option of covering a missing dog. I am certain that a story like this is easy to write but is this news?
