"Sedna", English Pointer, San Ramon-Found!

I received a phone call the day after the search that Sedna had been found in the parking lot of where we started the search the day before. A ranger recognized her and called her person. It appears that Sedna backtracked all the way from where we were the day before.

Sedna is a seven year old English Pointer. She is not wearing a collar, but she is microchipped. She and her person went to the Las Trampas Wilderness and were there for several hours. Near 5 PM on that Sunday, the two got separated from each other. Her person went all over the place looking for her until dark, but could not find her.

I was called on that following Tuesday, and we went out that next morning. We had to hike for about a half hour to the last known place where Sedna was seen. Once there, we checked all the different directions and found her direction.

The track went out of the park and onto private property and all the way down to the end of Bollinger Canyon Road. We followed the track for over ten miles all the way into the Moraga area, near St. Mary's College, where Sedna's person stopped the track. He said he would continue to look for her.
