Search for missing service dog continues: Christie Ileto reports on Action News at 6 p.m., November 12, 2017 (WPVI)

The search for a missing service dog continued today in Delaware.

A search party launched drones to look for the dog named Ozzy, who disappeared three weeks ago.

Ozzy, a grey colored Goldendoodle, was paired with Army veteran Lori Biyou when she returned from Afghanistan. He is her mobility dog and also helps her cope with PTSD.

Last month, Ozzy suffered a seizure. It scared him so much he took off running from the Bilyou's Newark home. He has been missing ever since

"We've had a lot of sightings," said Lori Bilyou. "The problem is trying to suss out real sightings from false sightings."

But the retired Army Sergeant admits they haven't come close to getting Ozzy back.

"One would hope we're getting close," she said. "We need people who are aware of their surroundings and if they notice him to call, not him call us."
