OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Tia Torres from Pit Bulls and Parolees is in Omaha to help search for missing dog.

Dozens showed up to help the creator of Pit Bulls and Parolees, Tia Torres, search for a missing Shepherd mix. She drove 16 hours to help find the rescued dog.

"It took us weeks to catch her originally. This dog is completely feral, she hasn't been around any humans whatsoever, except her former owner. You are never going to catch her. Calling out to her is just going to make it worse and she will get spooked and run off," said Torres.

She is asking for people to help but to not try and catch her, just take a photo and send it to Twisted Tails Animal Rescue. They need to confirm that she is still in the area. She was last seen near Safari Park & Highway 66.

"Any dog that is out there, they are confused, we just want to try and help and get them home. There are so many dangers out there that could hurt the dog," said Michelle Bank, Nebraska Dogs & Rescue.

They have a drone as well as other dogs to help in the search.

Torres adds, "If we can get confirmation she is still in the area, we can set up a special trap that we can trigger remotely without anybody having to be around it."

More than 10 million pets are reported missing each year. The majority are found but even one gone missing is very emotional.

"To think of her running lose, It's really hard, it just weighs heavy on your heart," adds Torres.
