An 8-month-old hound has gone missing from the Ritter Island area, and the owner believes the animal may have been picked up by a motorist. A reward has been offered for the safe return of the animal.

"Teeko" has been missing since the morning of July 11. He is black and white, and wasn't wearing a collar at the time he disappeared.

"He wandered off in the country between Hagerman and Wendell, near Box Canyon and Ritter Island, said Shane Kay, the animal's owner. "Someone may have picked him up."
