They arrived on scene and spoke to the owner who told them the area where he believed the dogs could possibly be.

A cliff technician was lowered to the bottom of the cliff where he searched the rocks and cave to try and locate the dogs.

With the tide fast approaching the cliff technician was recovered back to the top of the cliff.

Whilst this was happening one of the dogs was unfortunately spotted drifting south in the water.

Sunderland lifeboat was then requested to attend the scene and search the area.

After some time due to the sea state and size of the dogs it was decided that nothing more could be done and teams where stood down and returned to station.
