"Tesla," Creme DMH, 12 Years, Fremont

Day One:

Tesla is an indoor neutered 12 years old creme colored DMH. He was last seen inside the home along with another cat who also lives in the house. Somehow the front screen door got open and both cats got out of the house. The other cat was found under the house, but Tesla was not found, despite an immediate search of the area and surrounding neighborhood and postering of flyers. He is not wearing a collar, and he is microchipped. 

The track we found was around the neighborhood and then out towards the Alameda Creek, It went through Coyote Regional Park and then came back out onto Paseo Padre. It then went into Fremont and over 880. The search was stopped at four hours and we are scheduled to go back again tomorrow. 

Day Two:

We started where we left off on Friday and continued around some parks in Newark. While we were tracking, Tesla's person found a deceased cat in a road from being hit by a car. I went there and saw the cat and it definitely wasn't Tesla. The colors were different. There was another cat nearby that was also hit by car. Tesla's person called Animal Control and reported both to be picked up. The search was stopped at 4 hours. We have plans to start again on  Tuesday.

Day Three:

"Oakley," Australian Shepard mix, Red and White, Richmond

This isn't a photo of Oakley. I never received a photo from his people, so I pulled this from my own collection. It means "I love you" in sign language and is on the Embarcadero in San Francisco. 

Oakley is a one year old red and white Australian Shepherd mix. While staying at the Milo Foundation and being walked by a volunteer, he got out of his collar and took off. His previous person found out about the escape and immediately started looking for him. He is not wearing any ID and is not microchipped. 

There was only one sighting within the week that he was missing and we came out for the search. The track we found led completely away from the location where he went missing. We went all the way to the far distant locations of the Port of Richmond and then all the way back, but on the opposite side of the street from the way he walked in. 

Oakley's people did confirm that Oakley is very skittish around strangers and people of all types, so it would be difficult to catch him. The chance of him approaching a stranger for help or food would not exist. 

They said they would continue to look for him.

"Kofi" Chihuahua, Blonde. San Carlos - Found

GPS Map of search

Kofi is a 14 year old Chihuahua mix. When he went missing on New Years Eve around 7 PM he was wearing his collar and ID tags and an AirTag GPS indicator. His person told me his eyesight and hearing were becoming diminished. 

He got out of the yard by accident when his person came home and drove the car into the fenced yard where the driveway is and Kofi took off without her knowing he was out. An hour later they noticed he wasn't in the house and went out looking for him. 

Later that night around 9 PM they received two pings from his collar and went to that area about 45 minutes from the house. A person also told them they had seen Kofi that night. No other sightings or calls were received. 

I came out to do the search on that following Friday. I arrived at noon and Asia immediately picked up the scent leading out of the yard and eventually to the area of the two pings and sighting in a neighborhood park. The search continued for another three hours around San Carlos, and it was stopped at the four hour mark. We scheduled another time to come back that Sunday morning. 

The next morning early I received a text that Kofi had been found later Friday night after a ping was received by his collar. They went to the location and made contact with the person at home.  Kofi was found deceased inside their pool inside their yard. Somehow Kofi made it into the open yard and unfenced pool and fell into the pool.

"Cosmo" DSH Grey San Francisco

Cosmo is a 10 year old, indoor only, grey DSH with green eyes. He was not wearing a collar but he was microchipped. 

There were no sightings of him after he went missing from his home around 8 pm when it appears he slipped out of the garage as his person was taking out the trash cans. It was not noticed he was missing until 5 AM the next morning when his person noticed he wasn't in bed with her. Despite an extensive search of the house and surrounding neighborhoods, no sightings or clues were found. 

The track we found led away from the house pretty quickly. There wasn't any going around and around like a normal lost cat. The track led down to Ocean Avenue and then made a right and went all the way down and through Lakeshore Plaza, down Sloat, through the Zoo parking lot and how to the Great Highway. The search was stopped at 4 hours and we got a ride back.

It appears he was picked up during the night probably by people who regularly search recycling cans. It is common for them to pick up cats since cats are small and easy to carry, making them nice companions for transient people. 

Animal was contacted and she said they would regularly contact them and check the shelter. 

His people said they would continue to look for him.

"Diplo" Grey DSH, San Francisco - Update! Diplo has been found!

Diplo has been found and is safe at home!!

Diplo is an indoor/outdoor two year old grey DSH who is microchipped but not wearing a collar. It is unknown why she didn't come home one night, despite a regular schedule of always being home at night. 

The track we found led away from the street and around and around the neighborhood and led out of the area and all the way to Lake Merced after six miles. There is a possibility that she was picked up by a person and carried out. The two tracks are similar of a cat walking and a human walking out of the area. 

Her person said she would continue to look for Diplo.

"Banchee," Catahoula Mix, Grey and White, Oakland


Banchee is an eight year old Catahoula mix who is microchipped but not wearing a collar. She got frightened of fireworks going off in the neighborhood from a house she was visiting.

There were no sightings of Banchee after she went missing despite an extensive search. She is afraid of other dogs and people also, which could make it difficult to physically catch her.

The track we found led all around Oakland and eventually onto International Blvd, heading south towards San Leandro. 

Banchee"s person said she would continue to look for her and stay in the area until she was found.

"Leo" DSH Grey Tabby with White, Oakland


Leo is an indoor/outdoor, microchipped 11 month old DSH. He was not wearing a collar. It had come off a week before with his GPS tag. 

He was last seen by his person at 5 AM on a Monday when she was inside the house.  There were no sightings of Leo prior to our search. There are several homeless camps nearby under freeways. 

The track we followed around Oakland and Berkeley appeared to be that Leo had been picked up and carried away. Since the trash was picked up the same morning that he went missing, it appears that a transient/homeless person picked up Leo on his rounds of picking through the recycle bins that were put out on the curb. Leo's person confirmed that he is friendly with strangers and will approach them. 

Leo can get away from that person at any time and make his way back home, but he will face along the way other territorial animals. His person did put up flyers along the way of the search to alert people. Also, since the search crossed the borders of both Oakland and Berkeley and both have government and private shelters, I recommended that she contact all four shelters to alert Leo of being missing in case he shows up at any of those shelters, in addition to the county shelter in Dublin.
