LOST/MISSING EQUINE, – SUSIE – TENNESSEE
Vonore (Monroe County), TN, Monday, June 5, 2017
Susie was last seen in the Citico area of Cherokee National Forest on June 3, 2017 according to Katie Webb and Jonathan Guenther. They had been out trail riding when Susie was spooked and Katie was thrown. She was last seen in the Mount Pleasant area corner of Cooper Road with all of her tack still on.
Ms. Webb asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating their horse. Ms. Webb and Mr. Guenther have notified the Monroe County Sheriff Department and the Cherokee National Forest Park Rangers of the lost horse.
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.
“I’m injured but not badly. I looked all day yesterday along with the whole community on horses, 4 wheelers, ATVs and on foot.”, says Katie Webb, “Susie means a lot to me. My other horse is extremely depressed and won’t eat since Susie has been missing.” Ms. Webb went on to tell Stolen Horse International, that even though she was injured from the accident, she will not stop riding. They have contacted Monroe County Sheriff Department and Cherokee National Forest Park Rangers regarding Susie.
On June 5, 2017, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Webb 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.
You will find Susie’s webpage with information and a printable flyer in his NetPosse.com listing, which is where any updates or leads will be posted. Anyone interested in helping can search for report number NR005252 or use this direct link on the NetPosse.com site: http://www.netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=5252
“Circulating the flyer for Susie as well as the NetPosse.com Alert nationwide is imperative, as she could be anywhere by now. These flyers are one tool that brings home many horses and must be posted in as many public places as possible,” says Debi Metcalfe, founder of Stolen Horse International. “And remember, not everyone has internet access. Please post Susie’s flyer in public places as well.”
Pictures, flyer, contact information, updates and other information are on the NetPosse webpage to identify this case quickly when calling in a tip. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Katie Webb, Jonathon Guenther, Monroe County Sheriff Department, Cherokee National Forest Park Rangers or Stolen Horse International with any information.
