"Coby", Black/Tan, German Shepherd/Cattle Dog mix, Lafayette







As of September 10, 2011, Coby is still missing.
"Sighted all along Iron Horse Trail in Alamo and Danville.
Last seen on July 9th in Alamo Plaza and July 12th on Sycamore Valley Road in Danville."
Current sighting:
On Friday, April 29, Coby was spotted on Camille in Alamo, near the Iron Horse Trail, which is near where we left off on Day 6. 


On Tuesday, April 19, Coby was spotted in Alamo, on Danville Blvd near Hillgrade Road, in front of The New Life Church. Just behind the church is the IronHorse Trail, which is a connection to the Lafayette/Moraga Trail near Coby's house. He was described as thin and dirty. We went to that spot and confirmed that Coby's scent was there, and it was also out on the Trail behind the church. 


See the end of this blog for two additional searches following the sighting on April 19.


Missing since March 1, 2011
First search, March 7, 2010

Coby is an eight month old, black with tan, neutered, German Shepherd/Cattle Dog mix. He is wearing a collar with full ID tags and he is microchipped. He was missing from his home for a week when I was called. The home is on several wooded acres, and the family believed he was deceased somewhere on the property.

When I got to the property, we found Coby's track leading away from the house and up a hillside and out onto another street.

There are five days worth of track here.

Day Five, Track One:


On this day, we received a sighting of Coby two days prior up on St. Mary's in front of the roller rink. We drove there and his scent was there. We followed it along the Lafayette/Moraga Regional Trail until it got too dark. The search was stopped by Coby's family. They said they would continue looking for him. 


Within the next two days, a couple of sightings of Coby's were confirmed, but he was not caught.

Day 6:


The GPS was a little wonky that day. Ignore the mark in the ocean. Zoom into the mark in Alamo, which is the correct track.
