Tracking Tucker: The Dog Missing from La Quinta
La Quinta - KMIR6 News has been covering the efforts to find Tucker, a dog missing from the La Quinta Cove. San Diego resident Rachel Gigli was staying with friends while attending the second weekend of the Coachella Music Festival the weekend of April 19-21 when her dog, Tucker, managed to sneak out of the house. He hasn't been seen since.
Gigli has been in The Desert every weekend since Tucker disappeared and has even gone as far as hiring a pet psychic and a tracking dog company from Los Angeles. So far, no luck.
There was a possible sighting this week in the Cathedral Canyon area of Cathedral City. However Gigli tells KMIR6 News she is concerned the dog residents spotted may have been seen before Tucker went missing.
Gigli asks that Desert residents keep their eyes out fo Tucker. If you see a stray dog that looks like Tucker, she asks people not attempt to corner it, as she believes he's probably spooked and chasing him will only chase him away from the area. Instead she asks that you leave food in the area and call her immediately at (619) 964-0980. You can also let us know by emailing KMIR6 News and we'll pass the info to Gigli.
KMIR6 News is committed to making the Coachella Valley a better place to live. If you have a missing pet, we want to help you find it. You can email KMIR6 News information and photos of the missing pet and we'll feature it on KMIR6 Today weekdays from 5-7am.
