"Travis", Siamese, Lilac Point, Martinez - Found

End of case:
On July 8, 2011, I received an email that Travis' body was found underneath a next door neighbor's house. The body was found on June 8, by accident, by a person doing a home inspection on the house, which is for sale. This was nine days after our search and 15 days after he disappeared. The body was still bloated, which means that Travis had only been deceased for 24 to 48 hours at the most. There were no additional sightings of Travis after we did the search. The exact cause of death remains unknown. The body was buried immediately after it was discovered. 


Travis' person remains unconvinced that Travis could have traveled so far from his home. She believes that Travis was in his neighborhood the entire time, perhaps under this house since he disappeared. 

Beginning of case:
Travis is a three year old, male, lilac point Siamese. He is not wearing a collar and he is not microchipped. He was last seen around 4 AM eating food in the kitchen. There were no sightings of Travis after he was last seen at home.

"Pinkerton", Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix, Blond, Mariposa

Pinkerton is a ten year old, blond, Chihuahua/Pomeranian mix. Her hearing and eyesight per poor. Her people live on a very large property of almost 20 acres. Initially, before I arrived, they assumed Pinkerton had been attacked and taken away by a predator, so they did not expand their search beyond their own property.

When I arrived, Dino did find Pinkerton's track going down their long driveway and across the road to a neighbor's property. At this property, the owner did say that Pinkerton's housemate was a regular visitor, but they never saw Pinkerton there.

"Tiger", DSH, Grey Tabby, Half Moon Bay

Tiger is a very friendly, 10 year old, indoor/outdoor, silver and grey tabby. He is not wearing a collar and he does not have a microchip. He did not come home one day after a very predictable schedule.

His person lives in a gated community attached to a golf course. At the end of their street is a dead end that opens up into a golf course which runs along the ocean coast.

There was a single sighting of Tiger later in the day when his person last saw him. A neighbor saw him running along the golf course, and he said he had seen Tiger in that area before, so it did not alarm him and he did not know Tiger was missing until his person was out looking for him.

"Korin", DSH, Orange Tabby, Vacaville - Found!



About two weeks after the search, I received the following email:

"Good news,
We got a call from around the corner past the park on reuby and he found him. Lost a lot of weight, I ll take him to vet tomorrow. Thanks for all your help and information."

This location was along the path we tracked him on the way back. 



Korin is a very friendly, very large (over 18 pounds), indoor only, eight year old, orange tabby.  He is not microchipped, but is wearing a collar with tags.

Korin escaped as the family was leaving early in the morning for a vacation, and he was not noticed missing until a relative caring for Korin and the other cat came by the next day. When they got back from vacation at the end of the week, a full search for Korin began even though the relative did contact the local shelter and start to put up flyers. There were no sightings called in.
