A “devastated community” is desperately searching for the dog which is feared injured.
The Courier Mail reports, the couple’s dog Frankie survived but hasn’t been seen since.
Redland City councillor Rowan McKenzie said this morning that residents had been out looking for the missing dog.
“The community is obviously devastated by what happened yesterday afternoon and is trying to find a slither of good,” Cr McKenzie said this morning.
“Many residents have been out looking last night and early this morning for Frankie.”
Many locals also posted to community Facebook pages to urge others to join in the search for the dog which requires medication for a condition and was feared injured.
One man said he spent three hours out in the bush with a thermal scope looking for Frankie until 2am, while others said they had searched streets and cars into the early hours.
Officer in Charge of Capalaba station senior sergeant Dave Candale said this morning that he hoped Frankie would be found soon.
“I’m hopeful that Frankie will be located sooner rather than later,” senior sergeant Candale said.
If you find or know of Frankie’s whereabouts, take her to a local vet or contact Capalaba police on 07 3433 3333.
