A Cle Elum couple is searching for a service dog that went missing from their property last month.

The dog named Lakota went missing from Ken and Barb Toczek on Oct. 8. A handler tracked the 4-year-old female Australian Shepard down Forest Service Road 3350 and determined she was picked up by a vehicle, most likely belonging to a hunter.

The Toczeks hired an international K-9 search unit to look for the dog. The Kittitas Forestry Service, Fish and Game Department and Seattle Animal Shelter are among the other agencies searching for the service dog.

Anybody with information should call the Toczeks at 425-941-3619, or the Kittitas County Police at 509-674-2584. There is a reward leading to to the dog's safe return.
