A local family is asking for help finding a puppy that went missing during a car crash.

The 6-month-old puppy, Zink, belongs to a marine who was deployed to the South Pacific. The marine’s wife was traveling with their newborn son and Zink when they were involved in an accident.

Friends of the family say Zink got spooked and ran away.
