UPDATE: Reward Offered for Stolen Seeing Eye Dog

DAYTON -- Last night, we brought you the story of Sheryl Williams and her seeing eye dog Diamond.  Diamond went missing from Williams' back yard a week ago and hasn't been seen since.

Now a person who wishes to remain anonymous has offered a $500 reward for Diamond's safe return.

If you have any information on Diamond's whereabouts, call Dayton Police at 937-333-2677 (COPS).

DAYTON -- Police are getting involved after a blind woman's companion dog was stolen from her backyard. The dog has been missing since Feb. 17 and her owner is desperate for help finding her.

"I've just been sitting here, I can't eat, I can't sleep," said Sheryl Williams with tears in her eyes. She is legally blind, and her source of comfort, direction, and protection for the past six and a half years has been her Rottweiler companion dog, Diamond.

"Everywhere I go she guides me. I know the house but I don't know the outside area," Williams said.

The search for Diamond started that Monday morning after Williams' grandson put her outside on her leash. She wasn't there when he returned 10 minutes later, much to Williams' dismay. She contacted animal shelters and the Humane Society, canvassed the neighborhood, then called police for help.

"When the detective called today the first thing that I thought was a drug dealer has got her protecting his house or using her as a fighting dog," Williams said.

Sheryl Williams lost her eyesight giving birth to her daughter Julie, who has been helping her mother see in the absence of her canine companion.

"If it wasn't for Diamond a lot could happen to my mom," Julie said.

Diamond has distinctive facial markings that can help identify her. She also had on blue identification tags with her license number and address.

"I don't know how to explain that she just does everything," Williams said. "Everybody that knows my dog knows she's my sidekick."

Family and friends close to the case told the Dayton Police they remembered seeing a white car with an unknown white male inside sitting in front of their house around the time Diamond was stolen.
Any information about Diamond's whereabouts should be called into Dayton Police; 937-333-2677 (COPS).

Williams also wishes to be contacted if her dog is found: 937-237-2069.
