LOWNDES CO., AL (WSFA) -

On the side of Interstate 65 North in Lowndes County Gary Wood is calling for 'Scooter.' 'Scooter! Scooter!,' Wood bellowed along the tree line.

'Scooter' is the 4-legged friend, the family pet of David and Tina Moody of Monroeville. 11-years old, 'Scooter' is a red miniature Dachshund with a grey nose. The Moodys were involved in a car wreck on the interstate near Fort Deposit. Mr. Moody died, Tina suffered a broken arm and something happened to 'Scooter.'

Wood is determined to find him, something to ease the pain for a family that's lost a loved one and another dog that was riding in the back with 'Scooter.'

"You just never know. You hear animals showing up a hundred miles away alive and well," Wood said.

The Moodys were on their way to Lake Martin when another driver rear-ended them, knocking the Moody's car off the road. David Moody was ejected and died on the scene. Wood can only guess what happened to 'Scooter.'

"These types of dogs like to burrow and I hope it's a case where he is just lying low and will eventually come out," said Wood.

It's more than a week since the wreck and so far no sign of 'Scooter.' Wood has no intention in giving up.

Wood says there is a $200 reward for anyone who comes up with 'Scooter.' If you're lucky enough to find him Wood is asking that you call him at 334-207-5777.

'Scooter!,' Wood yelled again.

Gary Wood has already entertained the possibility that 'Scooter' may never be found. For now though Wood will keep on searching and calling the puppy dog's name and for the family's sake, hang on to hope.
