There have been no confirmed sightings since December 11, which is very discouraging.
On the positive side, there are still people keeping an eye out for her and a couple weeks ago a very nice person called us about a beagle she saw in her yard near Sligo Creek:
I called yesterday about seeing an off-leash beagle behind my house. I'm sorry to say it's for sure not Sassafras. I looked up your website last night and studied her markings in case I saw the dog again.
This morning around 7:30 I saw the same dog in the same area. The tail, though turned up like Sassafras', the white was only at the tip. Also, this dog has mostly black marking on the full length of the back and only white on the paws and front of the nose.
As soon as I got a good look at the dog, I double checked your pictures and could tell right away it was not her.
I read your FAQs and will know if I do see, the dos and don'ts. I really felt for you guys and am happy to see such dedication on your part to find her.
I posted a link to your website on a listserve many members of our church (The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) congregation are on in the Silver Spring/Kensington area. I also re-posted it on the Silver Spring Moms listserve, giving a bit of an update and confirming that the search continues.
All the best in your efforts.
