"Nala", Grey/Brown Tabby, DSH, San Jose


Nala is an indoor/outdoor, seven year old, eight pound, Domestic Shorthair Grey/Brown Tabby with white. When she went missing she was wearing a collar with ID tags and she was microchipped. 

She was last seen went she was let outside with her housemate cat, but Nala did not come back when the other did come back the next morning. 

There were no sightings of Nala after she went missing. 

Nala was missing for over a week when we were called out. 

The track did lead away from the house and we continued to follow it for several hours until the search was called off. They said they would continue to look for Nala. I did feel that they did not think that Nala could have traveled that far, which is a common belief.

"Jack," Cream Orange Seal Point, DSH, San Francisco


Jack is a seven year old, ten pound, indoor only, seal point/tabby domestic medium hair. When he went missing he was wearing a collar with ID tags and he was microchipped. 

Jack was last seen inside the third story apartment/loft, and it is believed Jack got out undetected when his person left the story open for a minute one evening. 

He was missing for a couple of days when we were called out.


There was a possible sighting of Jack after he went missing, but his people dismissed it because they thought it was too far away. After finding out how Jack left the building, shortly we were in the area of the possible sighting about four blocks from the building. 

We continued the search for three days, several hours each. On the first day, it did appear that Jack was picked up after walking through a homeless camp under a freeway onramp. One of the residents did confirm they saw Jack walking in the area late at night, and from there it was obvious that Jack had been picked up and carried all the way out to the Sunset District.

"Yoshi," Iguana, Redwood City - Found!


Yoshi is a five foot long, male, three year old Iguana. He was last seen on July 4, in his outdoor habitat. His people went to fireworks display, came home late and didn't check on him until the next afternoon, and they noticed his habitat door was loose and Yoshi was gone. 

There were no sightings of Yoshi after he went missing. 

We followed the track on two separate days for several hours each day.

I received an email almost two weeks later saying that Yoshi was found in the local neighborhood. His person said he was dehydrated and thin

"Tucker," Lab/Shepherd Mix, Black, Oakland

Still Missing as of November 23, 2014


Tucker is an eight year old, all black, 45 pound Labrador/Shepherd mix with a little white on his chest. When he went missing from his yard he was wearing a collar with ID tags and he was microchipped. 

Tucker was missing for a couple of days when we were called. 

There were sightings of Tucker after he went missing, and we started at the most recent one. Dino picked up his scent from there, and while we were on the search, a person told us about a sighting just that morning. We started from there and continued. 

While we continued to follow Tucker for three more days, additional sightings were told to us. 

The search has continued to find Tucker since that time, but so far, Tucker remains missing.
