Crown Heights 8-year-old searches for missing dog

An 8-year-old boy in Crown Heights is asking for help with finding his missing dog, Midnight.

Latrell McPhail and his family are holding onto all of their pet's belongings with the hope that the black Pomeranian will turn up after he disappeared in December.

McPhail, who has brain cancer, says he just misses his best friend. His mom Alicia says she can't offer a reward, but wants whoever may have Midnight to return him before her son begins another round of chemotherapy next month.
