PUEBLO, Colo. — Searchers are looking for one dog still missing after a fatal rollover crash on I-25 last week.

The search for Kelly, a 75-pound apricot and cream shepherd mix, is continuing.

Volunteers with the search team said Monday that several local residents and ranchers have mistaken Kelly for a coyote when seen from a distance.

Searchers added they have had numerous confirmed sightings of Kelly and are asking people to refrain from approaching, chasing, yelling at or scaring her away.

Powder was recovered safely Friday in the Colorado City area with the help of local residents who recognized her from missing posters. She is being sent to Pueblo Animal Services for a medical evaluation.

The volunteer search team found Sandy on Thursday. Coco was found Tuesday.

The rollover crash happened January 13 when 59-year-old Charles Roberts of Katy, Texas, struck a guardrail between Walsenburg and Colorado City. Colorado State Patrol says Roberts overcorrected, causing the truck to roll. Roberts was driving a van full of 27 dogs from Houston to various Colorado rescues when he crashed last Friday. He died at the scene.

If you have any information on the whereabouts of Kelly, call the RPM Search Coordinator at 720-256-3291. You can also call Pueblo Animal Services at 719-544-3005 or the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak region at 719-473-1741.
