On April 6, while Chris had stepped away to use the bathroom, a woman approached Chris’ belongings, picked up Lucy and walked away with her. Poor Chris was incredibly distraught when he came back to find Lucy gone, and quickly reported the incident to the police, who immediately began the search for Lucy.
The people who saw and talked to Chris every day began to ask where Lucy was, and everyone was so hopeful that the police would soon be able to reunite the two best friends. Chris even made a sign that read, “My pet rat Lucy was stolen on Saturday. Lucy is black and white with a bit of brown.”
Finally, about a week and a half later, officers brought Chris to the police station — and were finally able to reunite him with Lucy.
