MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A PTSD service dog named Scrappy has gone missing, and now police need your help to find him.
His owner Randy Holmes said he was driving through construction traffic on Highway 78 south of Shelby Drive in the afternoon of July 14 when his companion disappeared.
One minute the little guy was sitting in his vehicle and the next, he was gone.
Police said the windows were rolled down, but Scrappy — who was wearing his service dog vest at the time — is so well trained that he wouldn’t have jumped out on his own.
Holmes expressed concern to police that someone may have reached into his SUV and snatched Scrappy while traffic was at a standstill, but there are no suspects.
A search of the area turned up no sign of the dog, last seen wearing a yellow vest with a service dog placard and Holmes’ phone number on it.
Holmes said Scrappy is crucial in helping him cope with severe back issues caused by a motor vehicle accident and is devastated the dog is missing.
As the hours and days pass Holmes says he’s holding out hope for news about his companion, whether it be good or bad.
If you can help locate Scrappy, call Crime Stoppers at (901) 528-CASH.
