Can you help find misty?

Paige Schmidt, of Nevada City, is desperately seeking her precious, loyal 5-year-old Pomeranian, Misty, who went missing Feb. 20.

Schmidt is pretty sure Misty was stolen from her home on North Bloomfield Road, and she’s heartbroken about it. Schmidt heard a car pull into her driveway, and when she called her four dogs to come inside, Misty was the only one who didn’t show up.

Misty has eye problems and osteoporosis, for which she needs proper veterinary care. If you know where Misty might be, call the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office at 265-7880.
