CINCINNATI (WXIX) – A Florida truck driver recently stopped to make a delivery in Woodlawn. When he returned to his truck, his dog was missing.
It happened on Wednesday May 5 as Pedro Jose Reyes II made a delivery to a business in Redna Terrace Road. Lola, the puppy, has been missing for three weeks now.
“I really miss my dog. She’s my best friend,” Pedro Jose Reyes II said Tuesday from Florida, where he has since returned.
The couple live in Florida, but Reyes drives through Cincinnati almost every week.
He hired Lola for three months in his job as a truck driver. She will be 3 years old next month.
Reyes says she was basically raised on the road. He describes her as sweet and shy.
“I just want my Lola back,” he said. “She…you know, nobody knows her like I do.”
Reyes says he was only gone for three minutes on May 5 when Lola disappeared.
“I walked sideways to let my dog out, and she just wasn’t there,” he recalled. “Which doesn’t matter. He’s a good dog, you know? I looked around. I thought for sure she was going to be, like, right there.
Reyes searched for Lola for hours, even putting off further deliveries. Eventually he had to leave. He says that was the hardest part.
The truck driver took to a Facebook group for those who have lost pets in the tri-state. Her post received more than 100 shares.
Although Lola still hasn’t shown up, he says the Cincinnati community has, with flyers posted around the neighborhood.
“The people of Cincinnati have been surprisingly very good about it,” he said.
Locals posted signs, sent Reyes ties and put boots on the ground looking for Lola in the hopes that she can lead her back into Reyes’ arms.
