OKLAHOMA CITY—Cars are stolen every day but it was what was inside a stolen truck that has an owner offering a $10,000 reward for clues to finding his missing vehicle.
Martin Kirkley is desperately searching for his dog, Chloe, who went missing Friday afternoon.
Kirkley said, “She’s just like a child. I mean, just like anybody’s dogs you’ve had forever, she’s a family member.”
Kirkley and a friend stopped by a lounge on S.E. 59th St. and I-35 but when they came out, the truck was gone, with Chloe inside.
He said, “The surveillance cameras they have there where it was parked, they don’t cover that part.”
Chloe is a 5-year-old black and white Australian Shepherd and weighs 55 pounds.
He said, “We’ve been looking for her non-stop til now. The Valley Brook Police Department just called and said they thought that she was in the creek down there, so we’re going to go down there and look for them.”
Friends and family joined the search and passed out fliers in a nearby mobile home park.
Tracy Ward said, “Well, they’re saying that they’ve seen her at the grocery store on the corner around 9 a.m. and they saw her over here about an hour ago.”
The truck is a gold 2011 Ford 250, 4-door truck with custom wheels and tires. The truck also has a gold guard grill and Oklahoma tag 034-HHA.
Kirkley is offering a $10,000 reward for Chloe’s safe return.
He said, “No questions asked, I just want my dog back, no questions asked.”
Anyone with information on Chloe’s whereabouts is asked to call Mike, who is helping with the search, at (405) 831-7105.
