MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A woman is on a mission to find her dog who went missing when her car was stolen.
A day after the incident, Kristen Husk was putting up flyers in search of her pup named ‘Casey.’
Husk told CBS4’s Peter D’Oench no one has reported seeing Casey since she disappeared.
Husk says she was told by police that the woman who stole her car and an accomplice, a juvenile, are in custody and have said they let Casey go.
Now she’s desperate to find her dog – a 15-year-old Jack Russell mix.
“Casey is everything. She’s been part of our family for 15 years,” said Husk. “I am worried about her safety.”
She went on, “I’m in shock. I cried enough yesterday for the whole day. I’m in shock. I’m trying hard to have high hopes otherwise I am not going to get through this,” said Husk.
Casey was stolen at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday from the Sunshine Mart at Davie Boulevard and 35th Avenue when Kristen’s car was taken.
Surveillance cameras captured her running after her Toyota Corolla that contained her precious pet.
“She’s what I wake up to in the morning and what I go to bed with at night and she’s been a part of my life for so long that with her missing, I’m just up all night. it’s not right,” said Husk.
Husk has her car back. It was recovered near Northwest 9th Street and 27th Avenue. She posted flyers in that area.
“It wasn’t like I left her outside. My car and all my belongings were stolen with my dog, my precious little girl,” said Husk.
Husk unlocked car was taken when she stopped at the mart. She said she was in the store less than 30 seconds.
“I guess it was irresponsible and I made a mistake. I guess I thought I was going to be 20 seconds and I wasn’t even 10 seconds,” said Husk.
She won’t forget chasing her car.
“Be careful. Things can happen to anybody,” said Husk.
Now she prays someone will help her find Casey, a black and white dog who she says has big ears and a long tail.
“What would it mean for you to get her back? Everything. Everything. Eve though she’s safe, just something to know that she is okay,” said Husk.
A lot of people from Davie to Sunrise Boulevard on 27th Avenue have been asking about Casey. She does not have a collar or a chip. Her family is offering a $1,000 reward.
