UPDATE: WE HAVE RECEIVED TWO LEADS THIS MORNING. ONE PERSON SAW A WOMAN AT WALGREENS AT 52 AND RIVER ROAD WITH TWO CHILDREN AND A BULLDOG. WHEN APPROACHED AND ASKED WHAT THE DOGS NAME WAS THE WOMAN APPEARED TO GET NERVOUS AND THEN WALKED OFF. THIS SAME WOMAN 2 KIDS AND DOG WERE SEEN EARLIER HANGING OUT IN THE GRASS BY WALGREENS. THE DOG WAS DESCRIBED TO BE AN ENGLISH BULLDOG THAT LOOKED LIKE ERNIE WEARING A CHAIN CHOKER, WHICH ERNIE WAS WEARING LAST WE SAW HIM.
SECOND UPDATE: MAN REPORTED SEEING A WOMAN WALKING A DOG THAT MATCHED ERNIE’S DESCRIPTION NEAR CATON FARM AND RT 59. PLEASE HELP BY KEEPING AN EYE OUT AND KEEP SHARING. BOTH LEADS WERE FROM PEOPLE WHO “SAW IT ON FACEBOOK”. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!
