The nightmare is over. Dog missing almost a year reunited with owner

A year ago, Kate Olson visited her family in Arnold, Missouri when her dog Walter slipped out of his collar and bolted into some nearby woods and was lost.

She created a Where’s Walter” Facebook page to drum up some social media attention to find Walter.

In the months that passed, Olson got a few calls of sightings and held out hope. She flew back to St. Louis in January to continue her search.

“I just want to know if he’s okay. I want him to know that I’m not giving up on him. I’ll never give up on him,” she told Today in St. Louis’ Allie Corey at the time.

Ten months passed and Olson started to think she’d never see him again, until she got the call she’d been praying for on Nov. 13. Walter had been captured by Lost Paws Trapping of Belleville, Illinois. Olson jumped on the next flight to St. Louis and was reunited with Walter Friday night.
