Internet sleuths help recover a missing horse
After all the gates at a farm in Frederick County were left open overnight, four horses went missing.
And, after hours of searching—by foot and horseback, and with drone technology—there was still no evidence of the nearby horses, one of the owners began to think they may have been stolen.
With the help of some online sleuths, she's recovered one of them.

Valerie Vollmers said that her horse, Pie, has been returned to her after the animal was missing for over a week. Three other horses are still missing.
She was helped, in large part, by NetPosse, a division of the nonprofit group Stolen Horse International. NetPosse is a group that uses the Internet to round up a “modern-day version of a posse” to help owners locate their missing or stolen horses.
The story went on to explain that: One of those missing horses is April, who belongs to Tylen, a 9-year-old boy.
“It makes me upset,” Tylen said. “A lot.”
Tylen, whose father requested the child’s last name not be used, said he'd had April for as long as he can remember growing up.
His legs hurt, he said, “Because I’ve been walking for miles looking for my horse.”
