You may have read our story from Jan. 3 on Addie, a 4-year-old dapple dachshund who disappeared from a rental property in downtown Blowing Rock and was separated from her family members, who were visiting from Atlanta for the holidays, on Dec. 31.
Scheduled to leave town and return to Georgia on Jan. 1, Charles and Emily Heuer extended their trip and continued to look for Addie in the Blowing Rock area until they had to head home without her late last week. Now, in their absence, a slew of local residents have banded together and committed to tracking Addie down.addie
After her disappearance, Addie was first spotted around 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 1 at Food Lion in Blowing Rock, although she ran away from the folks who saw her.
When she was spotted again on Wednesday, the Heuers had already made their way to Greenville on their way to Atlanta. They turned around and came back to the mountains, but Addie was still not found. Heuer family friend Pat Joynes said she was seen again on Thursday.
“Thursday, a big group of people searched and she was spotted on Dameron Drive in the Ski Crest community. No luck. The owners had to return to Atlanta last night,” Joynes said on Friday. “The High Country community has made the search for Addie a priority, especially with the bad weather coming in, but we need more eyes.”
