A 9-year-old black lab named Lilly has been missing for days and her family has been out looking for her.

Lily has been missing since 2 p.m. Friday north of Goley’s Lane and Three Mile Road in Caledonia.

“My husband was working and I was traveling to run a marathon this weekend. Our neighbor was watching her and she slipped out of her collar and went missing. This is my 11-year-old daughter’s best friend and this has made this weekend very stressful,” said Krysten Merten, the owner of the dog.

Lilly has a white stripe on her belly. She is micro chipped, but the family hasn’t heard anything about her whereabouts.

Merten’s phone number is (902) 0861 or (262) 902-0860.
