Possible sighting - Capital Crescent Trail near mile marker 6

(Everything big in the Sass search happens around rain time...)

At about 3:45 PM today, a woman reported sighting a dog that could be Sassafras on the trail that goes under the bridge near mile marker six on the Capital Crescent Trail. (

She did not see the dog's face, but only from behind and above, and felt it looked like Sass' picture. The dog she saw had on a harness (she did not notice color) and she waited for what she felt was long enough to determine that no human was nearby.

 The dog was headed west (she thinks).

Folks in that area, please keep a look out. We can't get there very quickly and this sighting is not quite of clear enough quality to rate as highly likely....
