LOST/MISSING EQUINE, – SWEET PEA – CALIFORNIA
Norco (Riverside County), CA, Monday, June 12, 2017
Sweet Pea was last seen on June 10, 2017 when she spooked and ran off headed west towards the 15 freeway overpass through the river bottom. Sweet Pea is fully tacked.
Ms. Stone asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating her horse. Ms. Stone has notified the Riverside County, Norco Sheriff Department as well as Animal Control.
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.
“Sweet Pea was the horse that I never thought I would own again”, according to Brandy Stone, “She is my peace and my sanity as a single Mom.” Ms. Stone went on to tell Stolen Horse International that her son also rides Sweet Pea and he was just beginning to learn how to ride. He was going to be his rodeo horse. Multiple riders have searched the river bottom and there has been no sign of her. They have contacted Riverside County Sheriff Department and Animal Control regarding Prince.
On June 12, 2017, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Stone 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 Sweet Pea’s webpage with information and a printable flyer in her NetPosse.com listing, which is where any updates or leads will be posted. Anyone interested in helping can search for report number NR005259 or use this direct link on the NetPosse.com site: http://www.netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=5259
“Circulating the flyer for Sweet Pea 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 Sweet Pea’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 Brandy Stone, Riverside County Sheriff Department, Animal Control or Stolen Horse International with any information.
