The carjacking victim tells WWL-TV that her SUV was found Saturday morning, but the dog, Skeeter, wasn't in it.
Jefferson Parish deputies found her vehicle in the 1100 block of Scotsdale Drive in Harvey. They told her the driver fled the scene.
However, there was something in the vehicle, which gives her hope her dog is okay.
"There was a leash, that was in the car, when I went through the car," she said. "That wasn't a leash that was familiar to me, so it kind of makes me hope that they are keeping Skeeter or gave Skeeter to someone."
The 11-year-old Chihuahua and Jack Russell Terrier mix was taken when the victim was attacked and her SUV carjacked on Tuesday night at Claiborne Avenue and Burdette Street.
This week, the Humane Society of Louisiana stepped in helping to double a reward for Skeeter's return, raising it to $1,000.
If you have information on Skeeter or want to help, contact the Humane Society of Louisiana at 1-888-6-HUMANE or go to humanela.org.
