He says he has reason to believe he’s here.
For Cameron Hodges, Harvey is more than just his pet.
He’s his therapy dog. and before he went missing, the pair hadn’t been apart for more than a couple days at a time.
Hodges was visiting Paradise, California during the Camp Fire when Harvey got loose.
Since then he’s been searching along I-5. He told NBC5 that several people have reached out to him, saying they’ve seen Harvey.
“I try not to get my hopes up because it just breaks my heart so much every time I run into a wall,” said Hodges. “I know I’m gonna see him, I know I’m gonna see him again, because I got that picture that he’s still alive.”
He says the most recent sighting, was at the Shell station in Ashland. He was with a woman.
If you see Harvey or know anything about his whereabouts, Hodges asks you take a picture and call 707-731-9388.
“If I didn’t the networking going on and all the people helping me right now it would be almost impossible to dot this,” Hodges said, “and it’s really the help of the community that’s making everything work for me and keeping my hopes alive.”
The Butte County Sheriff’s Office has been notified about the situation.
Hodges is offering a $10,000 dollar reward for the safe return of his beloved dog.
