MISSING EQUINE, – “Zay” – Florida
Tampa (Hillsborough County), FL, Friday, December 15, 2017
Zay was last seen on December 13, 2017 according to Eleah Fayad. Ms. Fayad advised that on Thursday while searching the pasture for Zay, she found the back-gate chain was undone and the gate was open.
Ms. Fayad asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating her horse. Ms. Fayad advised that Hillsborough County Sheriff Department has been notified of the missing 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 got her Mother when she was pregnant with Zay. I owned her for a year and a half and due to financial reasons, I had to let her go. In February of 2016, the lady that had her called and told me she could no longer care for her and asked if I wanted her back. I was so excited, I wrote a song about getting her back and vowed she would never leave me again no matter what.”, says Eleah Fayad. “Zay is like my child. I’m in such shock and under so much stress with everything else I just feel so mentally frozen. I already had to be without her before I will not let it happen again. I need to find her!” Ms. Fayad went on to tell Stolen Horse International that Zay means the world to her. She is very worried about Zay. Stolen Horse International is currently working on locating a drone pilot that can assist with the search for Zay.
On December 15, 2017, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Fayad 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 Zay’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 NR005391 or use this direct link on the NetPosse.com site: http://www.netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=5391
“Circulating the flyer for Zay 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 Zay’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 Eleah Fayad, Hillsborough County Sheriff Department or Stolen Horse International with any information.
