Search continues for Irma evacuee’s lost dog

Faith the dog has been missing since her family, evacuees from Hurricane Irma, were in a wreck in Fayetteville Sept. 12. Local authorities are asking for help finding her.

Folks are still hot on the trail, hoping to find a dog lost when its owner, an evacuee in the area fleeing Hurricane Irma, was in a wreck in Fayetteville.

On Sept. 12, the family was in a traffic accident at Jeff Davis Drive and Kathi Avenue in Fayetteville, and Faith, their white and brown dog, ran away from the accident scene and has not been found since.

The story has tugged at the heart strings of many. Signs are up around town asking for help, and Lovy Myers, a lost pet recovery specialist, is employing a tracking dog to aid in the search.

As of Friday afternoon, there was no firm sighting of Faith.

The City of Fayetteville Police Department is asking that if you locate Faith, please call its non-emergency number at 770-461-4357 so she can be reunited with her family.
