A Woman is killed and her Dog is lost
A tragic accident and now the search for a lost dog.
Her two dogs were with her as she made her way from her Clarkston home to her Pontiac art studio when catastrophe struck at Clarkston and Sashabaw roads Wednesday morning.
Laura's life was unfortunately lost. However, her two dogs survived the accident. One of the dogs was recovered by the Oakland County Animal Shelter. But the other, Hogan, ran into the woods nearby and has not been seen.
Family and friends are trying to find the missing pit bull. The dog is described as male with a dark brindle and white coloration. The dog has been characterized as meek and very timid.
After such tragedy, Animal Control Officer Mary Saple says, "I'd really like to see some happiness for this family who has just lost so much," and so every effort is being made to locate the dog.
If you see a dog matching the description, call the Oakland County Animal Control at: (248) 391-4100.
Meanwhile, you'll be able to see Laura Fyfe's artistic glass Welcome Sign at the Oakland International Airport after next week's Grand Opening.
Update August 20, 2011 - The following article is from The Republic:
Dog missing since artist owner was killed in car crash found, cared for by utility worker
Hogan, a pit bull that ran from a crash in southeast Michigan that killed its owner, has been found.
WJBK-TV reports that a DTE Energy worker had been allowing the dog to roam on his five acres of land in St. Clair County, northeast of Detroit, after finding it Tuesday.
Hogan last was seen Tuesday running into a wooded area in Oakland County's Clarkston after 55-year-old artist Laurel Fyfe was involved in a head-on collision. Fyfe later died at a hospital.
She was on her way to her studio in Pontiac with Hogan and another dog at the time of the accident. The other dog was found and returned to the studio.
Fyfe designed the glass on the welcome sign at the new terminal at Oakland County International Airport.
