Andy is a two year old, 35 pound, black and white Kelpie mix. When he went missing he was not wearing a collar, but he was wearing a black nylon harness and he is microchipped.
Andy disappeared on Saturday, October 19 at around 7:30 PM when he went outside in front of the house to "borrow the tree." However, he did not return.
There were multiple sightings of Andy that night and the next day all around the area of the home and several blocks in every direction. However, Andy is very shy of humans and would not allow anybody to approach him or help him.
We started the search on the following Tuesday, and started with the most recent sighting. We followed the track around the area and through some pretty rough bushes. While we were on the search in the third hour, Andy's person received a call that Andy had been seen just a half hour before at a park in downtown Emeryville. We walked to that area, I had Dino check the area, but he indicated that the scent I showed him was not here in the park. It appears that the dog seen by this person was not Andy. Afterwards we discovered that the person was a full block away from the dog she saw, and there were a lot of visual blocks in her way from seeing the dog clearly.
We went back to the place where we left off and continued following the track. The search was called off at the five hour mark. She said she would continue to look for Andy.
