12/29/17 UPDATE - Jody Collier tells NewsWatch 12 Lacie has been found and returned!

MEDFORD, Ore, -- A Medford mother is searching for her son's emotional support dog that went missing just before Christmas.

Jody Collier says that her son, Tosh, has Asperger’s and relies on the dog for everyday life. Since herdisappearance, he hasn't been sleeping or eating well and says that he will do anything to have her back.

The dog, known as Lacie, was at the dog-sitters house on December 19th when she got out and was seen walking down Table Rock Rd. on the home surveillance system.

Employees at the Human Society, across the street, saw Lacie and tried to catch her but were unsuccessful. She hasn't been seen since.

The Collier's put posters up surrounding the area that Lacie was last seen. They even posted a reward to Facebook and Craigslist. In the last couple of days, their posts were flagged and deleted, something that International Canine Search and Rescue says is common with stolen pets.

Having possession of a stolen pet is a felony in Oregon. Harry Oakes, the Search and Rescue Coordinator for International Canine Search and Rescue, says that it's not uncommon for pets to go missing around the holidays because people are lonely and want to keep a seemingly stray dog or cat. Oakes says that if you find a stray you are obligated, by law, to report the animal to local authorities.

If you have any information about Lacie's whereabouts please call the Jackson County Animal Shelter at (541) 774-6654.
