A family is frantically looking for their pet cat who has gone missing after moving to South Tyneside.
Leigh Roberts and her family moved to Marsden just a few months ago from the Isle of Wight.
Now, the family's cat, 11-year-old Purdy, has gone missing.
Leigh said they have been searching for her for a week, but with no luck.
The worried owner, said: "We only moved here in March and I'm worried she might be lost.
"She does go out, but this is really out of character for her. She usually comes back every night and has never disappeared before."
If anyone has seen Purdy or knows where she contact Leigh on 07368 347097.
