A family in Fountain Inn (Laurens County), South Carolina, is desperate for answers after their two-month-old miniature horse seemingly vanished into thin air. The filly, Pikachu, was last seen at her 11 p.m. feeding on June 5 (Tuesday). By morning, she was nowhere to be found.
Pikachu’s owner, Kate Fowler Nichols tells WYFF News, “Her mother and the rest of the herd is very distressed. There is simply no sign of her anywhere. No sign of predators. Nothing.” On June 6, Nichols utilized social media to ask the public for help:
MISSING – FOUNTAIN INN, SC. URGENT 6-6-19. This tiny two-month-old miniature Filly is missing from my farm in Fountain Inn. Please share, please call or text 864-477-9284 if you have seen her. She probably only weighs 40 lb. She still needs to be drinking milk, please help me find her.
Net Posse, an organization that helps find lost or stolen horses, has joined the search. The posting created on Pikachu’s behalf can be found here.
There has been speculation that Pikachu may have been stolen – her owner is hopeful that a reward will prompt someone to come forward with information. On Sunday morning, Nichols wrote:
