LOST/MISSING EQUINE, – PRINCE – SOUTH CAROLINA
Jamestown (Berkeley County), SC, Monday, June 12, 2017
Prince was last seen in the Highway 45 area of Jamestown, SC near the Charleston/Berkeley County Line in the Francis Marion National Forest on June 8, 2017 according to Ragan Wallace. Prince was startled and broke out of his pasture. He then became startled again and ran down Highway 45.
Ms. Wallace asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating her horse. Ms. Wallace have notified the National Forest Law Enforcement and Berkeley County Sheriff Department 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.
“Still no sign of him! It has been 4 days!”, according to Ragan Wallace’s Facebook post on June 12, 2017, “A helicopter was used on Friday and no sight of him.” Ms. Wallace continues to search for Prince with the help of her friends and family. They have contacted Berkeley County Sheriff Department and National Forest Law Enforcement regarding Prince.
On June 12, 2017, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Wallace 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 Prince’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 NR005258 or use this direct link on the NetPosse.com site: http://www.netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=5258
“Circulating the flyer for Prince as well as the NetPosse.com Alert nationwide is imperative, as he 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 Prince’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 Ragan or Chris Wallace, Berkeley County Sheriff Department, National Forest Law Enforcement, Animal Control or Stolen Horse International with any information.
