Accident Victim Near Laytonville Needs Help Finding Her Dog
A reader named Holly writes that on November 29th around 11 a.m. she was in a very serious car accident, and her dog, Otto, was in the car with her and has not been located since.
I was in a car accident Nov 29 around 11am at mile marker 60 in between Willits and Laytonville. My dog Otto got out of the car somehow. I don’t know. I sustained major injuries and was most likely unconscious. Someone tried to catch him at the accident site and failed. I read on another thread he was seen outside of Laytonville.
If you have any info or have found him, please call Holly at 919-412-0054 or Declan at (919) 271-8917. Please help me get my little guy back.
In a phone interview, Holly said she has just recently been released from the hospital from this accident. She also said she feels really lucky to be alive. If another driver had not seen the accident happen, Holly said she might not have ever been found because her vehicle rolled down the steep terrain and was hard to see from the road.
After being cut out of her vehicle, she was put into a medically induced coma to help reduce the swelling in her brain. Holly said she doesn’t remember the accident or first 20 days of her hospital stay.
Holly said her condition was so serious that her friends and family are amazed and grateful at the extent of her physical and cognitive recovery. Holly said she is just now well enough to begin her search for Otto and that she is optimistic someone has found him and has him safe.
