Hoch and Hayman immediately started to search for Holly. “They asked people walking past on the trail, ‘Have you seen a little black dog? She’s got white socks,’” Nel said. “But everybody was like, ‘No, I haven’t seen her.’”
They kept at it. Hayman got his drone camera, and used it to scan the area from above. But they still couldn’t find her.
“They then put a call into DARG and I took that call,” Nel said. “And the owner, Michelle, said, ‘Help, help — I don’t know what to do. Holly’s gone missing on Lion’s Head.’ I know Holly really well, so I put down the phone and went to go help.”
