Johnny with a man
in the elevator of her building at 1212 South Michigan
Ave. When she
inquired about the dog the man was very evasive and
said it was his brothers dog. He got out on the 6th floor
building. We have sent investigators down to interview
see what can be found out. The woman has agreed to call
us if she spots the man again.
called from Lake Bluff saying there was a huge Newfie
white chest and four white paws being walked on Greenbay
blocks north or south of the Lake Forest/Lake Bluff border.
On January 18th, we received a call from a high school
student who lives by an elementary
Hudson, one block south of North Ave. She thinks she
saw Johnny being walked by a known man in the neighborhood.
Supposedly this man is still in the area although
specifically where, and may be ready to turn over Johnny
We have heard nothing solid for a week and our efforts
to find this person or where he is living has been
unsuccessful. The Chicago
police did a door-to-door canvas of all the apartment
buildings in the area.
Johnny was spotted on December 14th in the back
seat of a car being driven
by a 20 something man along with two younger

for Johnny's return and most of all - please
keep looking ... More search efforts will take

MURPHY the search dog and his owner Bonnie Hale are
in from St. Louis. We started out at the Franklin
St. address where Johnny escaped from. We canvassed
the area with Murphy taking the lead. Without Bonnie
knowing the route that was identified on last Fri.
as Johnny's path, Murphy took us back to the same
locations three times today. They are NOT in the
best of locations but we delivered, posted, flyers
and stopped all walkers and handed out more. We stood
on street corners and there will be more T.V. coverage
and everyone that can help... We will
be forever grateful!
