COLUMBUS, Ga — A local family says they need the community’s help to find a person who took their service dog Sunday afternoon.

Erica Rangel says she and her family were out of town for the night and when they got back their pit bull Whiz was gone.

Rangel says Whiz went missing from her home near Wesley Heights Elementary School at around 4 p.m. Neighbors with video surveillance cameras say they saw a person leaving the house with the dog around that time.

Rangel says Whiz is a service dog who helps with the traumatic, emotional responses to PTSD.

Whiz is a brindle colored pit bull weighing about 100 pounds. He has a white chest patch and a white line down the center of his eyes and nose.

The family says he should be wearing a silver collar. They say they are offering a $2000 reward to whomever finds Whiz.

If you see Whiz or are able to return him to his family, please call Erica Rangel at 561-231-3871.
