SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - A call for help in searching for a missing dog, owned by a deployed service member.
Jared Feiler, is stationed at Coronado North Island and is heartbroken over the fact that his furry child slipped out of his collar and has been missing since November 6.
Cooper the Lab ran away when a friend of Jared's took him to Maddox Dog Park in Mira Mesa near the Miramar Marine Corps Base. He slipped out of his collar and ran away.
Four days later, Katie, Jared's girlfriend, is still trying to find him.
Cooper is a year-and-a-half old purebred black Lab with brown eyes. He was last seen at Maddox Park in the Mira Mesa area.
Jared is expected to arrive back in San Diego within a few weeks and his girlfriend, Katie, says Cooper is the one thing this Navy sailor was looking forward to upon his return.
"It would be devastating for him to come back and not have him there. Especially when that's all our conversations revolve around," she said.
Cooper is micro chipped and Katie has tried calling all the local animal shelters with no success.
Katie's fear is Cooper's safety, but she is worried that someone may have found him and is trying to keep him because he is so friendly.
