A family dog went missing off the Blue Ridge Parkway Monday and by the time she was found Tuesday, thousands had rallied to find her.

Chris Herndon says he was hiking with Cassie near Looking Glass Falls Monday when he took the shelter rescue pup off her leash to rest and drink water, then yellow jackets swarmed, and she bolted.

Herndon searched for hours before it started pouring rain and getting dark. So Monday night he went home, posted a missing notice on Facebook and by the time she was found by hikers that were on the lookout Tuesday, his notice had been shared over 8,000 times.

Herndon said that seeing so much support from strangers, hundreds of people had also posted encouraging comments on Facebook, kept his spirits high.
