Woman looking for missing pup after thieves steal truck with dog inside
OKLAHOMA CITY – A metro woman is looking for her small Chihuahua after her truck was stolen with the dog inside it.
Heartbroken, it’s been a month since Katherine Coil has seen her little Chihuahua Lucy.
“I mean I keep thinking I’m going to find her on the way home,” says Coil.
Coil was running errands in the area of SW 44TH and May last month with her dog by her side.
Parked in this parking lot, Lucy stayed in the truck while Coil was in a store.
“When I came out, the truck and her was gone,” says Coil.
The truck, stolen with Lucy still in it, was later recovered in the parking lot of Penn Square Mall with flat tires and a broken steering column, but no sign of Lucy.
Coil says, “Her world was turned upside down wasn’t it.”
So she took off on foot searching for her and posting thousands of flyers asking for help along the way.
“I’ve walked South, West, North, East,” says Coil. “I never even got cold. I was just so concerned about finding her.”
And she hasn’t missed a day at the humane society, but still no Lucy.
Coil’s cellphone along with every picture she had of Lucy on it was also in the truck when it was stolen. This isn’t Lucy but she looks similar. She’s a long haired, solid black Chihuahua and weighs nothing more than five pounds.
“Lucy goes everywhere with me,” says Coil. “She rides on my shoulder a lot.”
Coil says she knows little Lucy is still out there somewhere, and she wants her back.
“As long as I don’t see any real evidence that she’s gone, I don’t want to give up,” says Coil.
There’s an incentive for anyone who see’s Lucy. Coil says she can only afford a $50 award right now but hopes maybe by the first of the year she can up it to $100.
