KSBW talk about our missing Rylee

Update October 18th '10


Thank you ALL - She would not be home if it weren't for all of you. THANK YOU!!!

We got a phone call yesterday in the late afternoon. It was a man who lived in Santa Clara. He was driving through Morgan Hill last Friday night on his way to meet friends at a campground. He saw a dog running downtown because he almost hit it. It was late, he didn't see anyone who looked like they owned the dog so he took her with him camping. On Monday, he drove back down here to see if he could find a poster and take care of some other business. Of course he found a poster. He said as soon as he saw the picture, he knew he had our girl. So he called me. He told us to head to Santa Clara and come get our girl. Jim was out putting up posters, no cell service, so it was my mom, my girls, and I driving to Santa Clara in a setting that could have easily been written into that 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' movie.

At this point, I knew that whoever had Rylee those first three weeks set her free because the campaign to get her back was so strong.

As soon as I saw Rylee and she saw me - that was it - she was in my lap. I was laughing, crying, and not making much sense. Rylee was crying, her heart was pounding right out of her chest, and she was glued to me.

We sang 'Don't Stop Believin' by Journey all the way home... We are elated and so grateful to all of you. The pressure was on and they had to give her back.

Thank you everyone.
