Dog missing from owner’s fatal crash scene

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – She lost her fiancé in a deadly car crash and now an Albuquerque woman is hoping someone can help her find their four-legged friend, who was also involved in the crash. Could a mysterious woman spotted at the scene have the answer?

The crash happened May 2nd. A witness reports seeing a woman taking off with the dog, a Corgi named Callie Lou, a dog Beth Rose’s fiancé took everywhere.

“Just a couple weeks ago, he said if anything ever happens to me you’ll take care of Callie for me right? I said of course I would, and so I feel like it’s his last wish that I find her,” Beth Rose told KRQE News 13.

Rose is hoping someone recognizes Callie. Her fiancé, Robert Davis, was driving back to Albuquerque from Roswell on U.S. 285 near Vaughn and Encino on May 2nd, after work. Davis died in a single-vehicle rollover. His fiancé said she doesn’t know exactly what caused the crash, only that his beloved companion, Callie, was nowhere to be found at the scene.

Since the crash, East Mountain Pet Alert put a post online, pleading for help finding Callie.

Rose received a tip stating a well-dressed woman in a black car was spotted at the crash scene taking Callie with her. Rose said she’s worried, since the area is very rural and there aren’t a lot of houses nearby.

Callie was wearing a pink collar with worn tags that had Davis’ old cell phone number on it, but she is micro-chipped with current contact information.

Rose said losing Davis is tough, and finding Callie would help comfort her. “It would mean the world, I mean it’s the little piece that I have left of him, because he loved her so much,” explained Rose.

Rose said East Mountain Pet Alert has helped find volunteers to post flyers in Vaughn and Encino. They plan on putting some posters up in Roswell too.

Rose said she’s driven back to the scene to look for the Corgi, to no avail.
