The latest news on Laika

Laika has not yet been found, but we have some news:

The posters have been working. I have had lots of calls with tips, sightings and offers of help. Thank you so much, we really appreciate it.

One very important tip came from a local, who said that the man in a wheelchair is a local character who always wears RED. If you look at the video, you will see that he is wearing red pants! The man hangs out on Myrtle Avenue and Downtown Brooklyn (Court St). We are concentrating our foot/bike forays there.

Detective Rogers and the 88th Precinct have been on the case - actively investigating along Fulton St today.

Assemblyman Joseph Lentol is drafting petnapping legislation today, prompted by Laika's case. This will be to raise the importance of the crime, from "Lost Property" to a felony.

Assemblyman Lentol also personally called the 88th to thank them for their help.

Laika will be featured on the front cover of the Brooklyn Paper for the next edition.

Brooklyn News Channel 12 is interviewing us and broadcasting her picture tomorrow.

On Friday night, we will be at the same place at the same time as she was taken last week.

On Saturday, we invite all friends and well-wishers to help us search in a coordinated effort during the day.
