Raider is a 2 year old Maltese. He is not wearing a collar, but he does have a microchip. He left the back yard from a hole under the fence. He was sighted for a couple of days in his and a surrounding neighborhood, but nobody could catch him. After the first two days, the sightings stopped. I was called at about the third day that Raider was missing.
We went to the last sighting, and followed his track from there. Below is the first track of the first day. The day ended near a sighting on the Saturday following his disappearance. However, his people did not think it was a viable sighting since it was so far from his home, but our search went right past that spot. The search for the second day was called to an end after several hours by his person accompanying me.

The second day started where the first day ended. This track continued for another several miles, including going through the former Concord Naval Weapons Station. The search was called off by his person after several hours. We tracked Raider to and through to the end of a shooting range. We figured he went under a fencing at the end and onto a road where some ranches are. He said he would keep looking for Raider.
