UPDATE: NewsChannel 4 viewer finds Spencer family’s missing horse
UPDATE: 9:33 pm – Victoria Crittenden, the lady who was missing one of her horses, was just reunited with her horse. A man was watching the story on NewsChannel 4 this evening. He called just after the story ran and said he had her horse. She went to his house and it was, infact, her horse. He had been caring for the horse since he found it wandering down the road.
SPENCER, Okla. — A family in Spencer is desperately searching for their missing horse, Victory. Over the weekend, one of their fences broke, which is how three of their horses got loose.
Two of them, Sage and Jet, have been returned, but one is still missing and the family believes he was stolen.
“He’s broke to ride, just a really sweet, gentle horse and I’m attached to him,” said Crittenden.
What happened is a large tree branch fell on Victoria Crittenden’s fence, allowing her horses to get out.
A neighbor called police after seeing the horses running free, but one was missing.
Horses are herd animals, they like to stick together. This is Victory’s family and that’s why the Crittenden family believes he was taken.
“For him not to return, but these two to return that leads me to believe that someone has got him,” said Crittenden.
That’s where things get fishy. There are reports of a mystery woman walking a horse down a road; 36th street.
However, now there’s no sign of either, making it hard for the Crittenden’s.
“I’m just able to wake up and not be crying. It’s like losing one of your kids at this point. We’ve put up flyers, we’ve talked to the neighbors,” said Crittenden.
Now, they’re holding onto the hope that someone steps forward and returns her beloved Victory.
“Turn him loose, turn him into animal control. You can call me, there will be no questions asked, I just want my baby back,” said Crittendenn.
The family has filed a report listing their horse as stolen.
