PITTSFIELD TWP. — Bogey, a 17-year-old quarter horse, is missing from the Oberlin/Wellington area after he jumped his fence yesterday afternoon.
Julie Dombrowski of Sheffield Lake said Bogey belonged to her aunt until she sold him Friday. Rachel Dicesare, who bought the horse, contacted Dombrowski's aunt when he went missing yesterday.
Dicesare said she spotted Bogey grazing in the front yard, but he ran off before her husband could get a hold of him.
According to the Lorain County Sheriff's Office, he was reported missing from Dicesare's home at 46775 Hughes Road, which is in Pittsfield Township.
"We've got so many people involved right now," Dombrowski said. "We're just trying to find him."
Dicesare added that reports of a horse being hit on U.S. 20 near the Oberlin Wal-mart yesterday were apparently a different horse because the accident occurred before Bogey got loose.
Bogey is sorrel, which is a reddish-brown color, and has a white marking on his forehead. Dombrowski said the last sighting of him she knows about is near the Hughes Road home he disappeared from.
Dombrowski appealed to the public for help.
"If they see him or find him, if they could call the Lorain County Sheriff's Office, that would be realy helpful," she said.
The number for the Lorain County Sheriff's Office is 329-3709.
Dombrowski added that anyone with information is welcome to call her aunt, Cindy Scherry, at 308-7396. Dicesare's phone number is 796-0967.
