BRUNSWICK COUNTY — The Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office is getting in on the search for a Charlotte family’s dog that went missing after a car wreck last week.

On Friday, May 24, the family vehicle wrecked – rolling over in the process – near the intersection of Highway 74 and I-140. According to owner Abby Williams, the family dog Ivy escaped after the vehicle stopped rolling.

The family search for Ivy, described as a “cream -olored Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, with gold eyes and black ears,” was reported by WECT, and numerous Leland-area residents joined in.

Now it appears the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO)has joined that search. Spokesperson Emily Flax confirmed BCSO had drones in the air to help aid in the search for Ivy. (Flax could not confirm the extent of the search, but offered to provide additional details as soon as they were available.)

In a post on the missing-pet site PawBoost, Williams said she was concerned because Ivy did not know the area – which is three hours from her home – but noted that Ivy is microchipped. According to Williams’ post,Ivy is wearing a pink collar and is microchipped. You can contact Williams by clicking here or calling 704-661-6900.
