MISSING EQUINE, – October Spotted TWH Filly – Tennessee
Brownsville (Haywood County), TN Saturday, November 19, 2016
A 2 month old October Spotted Tennessee Walker Black/White Filly was last seen on November 10, 2016 according to Samantha Melton. She co-owns the filly along with her father, Charles Humphrey.
Ms. Melton asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating the filly. On November 16, 2016, Ms. Melton reported that the October Spotted TWH Filly was missing from their property and they are concerned that the filly may have been taken. The filly was kept in a pasture with seven other horses including her Mom. The Humphrey’s have notified the Haywood County Sheriff Department of the missing filly.
Stolen Horse International, a nonprofit organization also known as NetPosse.com, is well known as the “lost and found’ place for horses on the internet for the equine industry. NetPosse.com offers horse theft and equine ID education and assist in search and recovery of stolen or missing horses, as well as other equine equipment.
“The filly was apparently removed from the property. We have done a complete search and no signs of the filly was found. No signs of a struggle.”, says Samantha Melton, daughter of Charles Humphrey. “Owners and neighbors have had thefts of equipment etc. in the last few months.” Ms. Melton went on to tell Stolen Horse International, that they have checked the property extensively. They have searched the 60-acre property and have seen no signs of animal attack, dragging etc.
On November 16, 2016, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Melton and, in short order, began distributing the information via their NetPosse Alert (the horse community’s Amber Alert) on the Internet to hundreds of social media groups and private email contacts in an effort to rally the public to help the family.
