Roscoe was seen shortly after 4 p.m. being struck by a vehicle, then spotted near Marigold and Interurban where it is believed he was struck by another vehicle. According to the ROAM Facebook page, because of his direction of travel, there is a possibility Roscoe could be in the Panama Flats area.

Roscoe is described as a five-year-old Great Dane cross with a collar.

In the two days since the dog went missing, many volunteers donated thier time in the search, however ROAM warns that Roscoe has the potential to be aggressive with strangers.

Anyone who spots Roscoe is encouraged to call ROAM at 778-977-6260 or 778-977-6265.
