WILMINGTON - A shih tzu has been reunited with its owner after it went missing when her car was stolen, police said.
The 77-year-old woman's car was stolen Friday after she left the keys in the ignition during a brief stop at St. Anthony's Church. The vehicle was found Saturday but the dog was not there.
The dog had been picked up by a family living in the area of the theft, police said. The family turned the dog over to police Monday after noticing news coverage of the incident.
