LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles dog that went missing three years ago has been found in Florida.
The Los Angeles Times reports (http://lat.ms/17OlFON ) Eric Hough's grey pit bull named Bayou went missing when he lived in Echo Park.
On June 5, Bayou was delivered to a Florida shelter by police officers. There, he was scanned for a microchip that revealed the dog belonged to Hough.
But the phone numbers listed on the chip were no longer working.
Hough, who is now a professional BMX rider living in Huntington Beach, was tracked down and contacted about Bayou by a volunteer for Missing Pet Partnership.
The dog is being transported to California through 30 different legs of a journey that began June 27. The dog is expected to arrive Sunday night.
