There is an email contact below, however, if this truck is spotted, I

would also suggest contacting the Jackson, MO Police (573) 243-3151 or

the local sheriff/police (911) for the area you see the vehicle.

The dogs and truck were all found together. Below are some of the messages that came thru tonight. Kathy



Good News, Everyone!


Bob's truck was just found, and the dogs are fine!


The truck had been abandoned in the Women's Baptist Center parking lot and someone noticed, this morning, that it had been there overnight and called the Sheriff. I believe she had seen the piece on tv that they did.



Just a quick update. Bob Vest's dogs (and truck) have been found. The

truck is still at the impound lot, but all three dogs are safely back with




Law enforcement found the truck, apparently undamaged with the dogs still in

the dog box. They will have to process the truck but are releasing the dogs



Thank you everyone for your concern, prayers and spreading of the alert.

I don't know Mr. Vest nor his dogs. I am VERY grateful that they were found and all are OK. However, just a question and/or warning: One article I saw said that he had gone into a hotel lobby. So - was his truck running? Were the keys in the truck? Just wondering how it could have been stolen so quickly.


Believe me, I am not trying to blame the poor man. He's been through enough! But a similar incident happened earlier this year, and the folks had left the car running so the AC would be on for the dogs. YIKES.


If I EVER leave a vehicle running with dogs in it (very rare anyway), I still lock it up and use my spare key to get back in. Just a thought.


Again, I'm very glad the dogs are OK!
