I received the following message about a dog, “Kamala,” that went missing on Saturday, Aug. 27 in the Drakes Brook Trail area. If you find – or even get a look at – Kamala (photos below), please call the owner whose number is listed below.
“ALERT: I know that we are in a hurricane situation, but…My nephew lost his Siberian today (Saturday, Aug. 27) in the White Mountains. They were in Waterville Valley on the Drakes Brook Trail around 11:30 am. She was lost about 2 miles into the trail. Her name is Kamala-She is very people shy-she is wearing a black harness and a tag with her name and phone #. Kamala is a small female, grey/black and white, with blue eyes, probably around 40 lbs. My nephew was forced to leave the area after searching, as the forest rangers were shutting down trails due to weather. Please, if you know anyone in this area, forward this message. Prayers would be appreciated, too! Call 603-860-1760. Police and local shelters have been alerted.”
According to a post on the Views From the Top forum, there was a possible sighting of Kamala on Aug. 29.
Forum member, Cath, wrote, “There was a possible sighting of her just before 10am this morning, near the 3 mile sign post on Rt 49, just west of Waterville Valley. The sighting report was not completely clear as to which direction the dog may have been traveling in.
“Her owner has posted numerous notices around Waterville, and down in Thornton at trailheads. The Drakes Brook & Sandwich Mtn trail loop was covered again, as well as the x-c ski / bike trails branching off from the Drakes Brook trailhead (Drakes Brook – Fletchers – Sloppy Joe – Jennings, etc) to the Athletic Center. The Old Waterville Rd – Pine Flats – and lower sections of Tri-Town and Atwood ski Trails were also covered today.”
