UPDATE SEPT. 19: Luxury Real Estate Advisors is now offering to raise the reward for Noah from $100 to $1,000.


RED ROCK CANYON (KTNV) -- A woman desperately searches for her missing dog. Sammie Mack’s pet disappeared last weekend at Red Rock Canyon.

Mack's friend last Sunday took her dog, Noah, up La Madre trail, a rugged stretch of Rocky Gap Road.

"He stopped to give him some water," Mack said. Her friend let the border collie off his leash. Noah took off running. "He bolts toward the trailhead, away from him. Something scared him." 

Mack has been looking for Noah all week. "I've been out here every day, sometimes 11 to 12 hours," she said. 

Mack has posted on social media and put up flyers. "I can't even imagine how terrified he is right now," she said, even placing Noah's kennel, blankets, and a water bowl near a spot someone may have seen him.

Mack now is pulling out all the stops, using a monocular that detects body heat. She hopes that will lead her to her beloved pet. "Things that are really hot will come out white. Things that are not as hot, will come out more black," Mack said.

Mack is even going low-tech, using a  bottle to leave her familiar scent, hoping it'll lure out Noah. "Marking all over the place everywhere I go," Mack said.

Mack has created a Google sign-up page, organizing a search party for Saturday morning. "I'm trying to get as many people on every trail looking for him," Mack said. "I'm going to be looking every day until I find him."

Mack is offering a $100-reward. She said she wouldn't stop until she finds her dog.

Mack also has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of the monocular and the reward for her dog.
