DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. —
A family visiting Atlanta from Florida is desperately searching for their service dog, after it fled from a car during a traffic accident.
Channel 2’s Michael Buczyner went to DeKalb County to speak with the family, offering a $2,500 reward for the person who returns the dog.
Lily has been missing since Wednesday night and they’re asking for the public’s help.
“I don’t think of her as a dog. I just think of her as my other baby,” Roxanna Guinan said. “She helps me with my depression and other issues I’m dealing with.”
The seven-year-old toy Pomeranian ran off, after Guinan’s daughter flipped the family vehicle, with Lily inside.
“The dog panicked and ran out of the vehicle,” Guinan said about the incident that happened along Interstate 285, near Interstate 675 in DeKalb County.
Guinan said the dog darted moments after the wreck and hasn’t been seen since.
“She’s scared to death out there somewhere. She’s hungry, she’s afraid and she needs me,” Guinan said.
Guinan said she came to Georgia from Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. to pick up her daughter and bring her back home, but Guinan never intended on losing Lily in the process.
“I can only imagine she’s out there looking for me as hard as I’m looking for her.”
Now the family is stranded at a hotel, waiting on any word about Lily’s whereabouts.
“I’m not going to leave until I find her. I have to find her,” she said.
Anyone with information about Lily’s whereabouts is being asked to call 561-632-0560.
A Channel 2 Action News investigation finds thousands of local votes in the last presidential election didn’t count, though many should have.
