Ella: Big radio show helping find a little missing dog

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A big search effort is underway for a little dog in East County. 

Ella, a 15-pound chihuahua mix, has been missing for about a week, but there have been few sightings. 

Sarah Mills of Escondido was at her parents' house in Santee when she left for food and learned Ella left too by jumping on furniture and clawing a hole out of a window screen. 

Sarah has been in love with her dog since she adopted her on Valentine's Day and she is determined to get Ella back. 

"I just squeak the little toy hoping she will come out and want to play," said Sarah. 

Ella went from a home in Santee to Riverford Road and El Nopal, in Lakeside where she was last seen on Saturday. 

Community members have come from all over joining on the search and calling in sightings. 

"It has been very empty, sad and difficult not having her with me. Just having her stuff, her little bed in my apartment and seeing it and having not be there is heart wrenching," said Sarah. 

Sarah has even called on the assistance of dog-loving DSC Show host Chris Boyer to help with the search. 

Boyer is a dog rescue volunteer, and with Ella being a rescue dog from Anaheim, he did not think twice about joining the search efforts to bring Ella home. 

A Facebook page has been set up to help bring Ella home and a $250 reward is also being offered.
