Pontiac, Michigan -- Oakland County Animal Control Division needs the public's help to locate a dog that ran away from the scene of a deadly crash Wednesday at Clarkston and Sashabaw roads.

Award-winning artist and Clarkston resident Laurel Fyfe, who designed the glass on the welcome sign at the new terminal at Oakland County International Airport, was killed in the crash as she rode to her art studio, Fox Fire Glass, with her two dogs.

Fyfe's two dogs survived the crash. One was picked up by the Oakland County Animal Control Division and returned to co-workers at Fyfe's art studio; but the other ran off into the woods near the crash scene and has not been located. Hogan, a male pit bull, has a dark brindle and white coloring; he appears very timid and meek.

Fyfe's family and co-workers are devastated, and just want to have both of the dogs back in their care. "I'd really like to see some happiness for this family who has just lost so much," said Animal Control Officer Mary Saple.

Please call Oakland County Animal Control Division at (248) 391-4100 if you see a dog fitting this description.
