On August 11, a police K9 with the Natchez Police Department in Mississippi, broke off of a tether and bolted – today, he is still missing. According to Sunday’s publication of the Natchez Democrat, the German shepherd, named “Cyrax,” may have been spotted on Saturday afternoon, near the Natchez Trace.
Cyrax had been tethered with a leash outside of a handler’s residence on Palestine Road – the dog, who was wearing a silver choke collar at the time that he broke free, was not reported missing for two days.
Anyone with a tip about Cyrax is asked to contact the Natchez Police at 601-445-5565 or Crime Stoppers at 601-442-5000. Though Cyrax is reported to be “fairly gentle,” the department has requested that residents call if they see him, rather than attempting to catch him.
