STOLEN EQUINE, – CR Platinum Kid aka “Patrick” – Washington
Olympia (THURSTON County), WA Saturday, October 15, 2016
On Tuesday, October 11, 2016, Kathy Cook’s horse, Patrick reported missing from her property. Patrick is a 2-year-old Palomino/White Blanket Pattern POA – Appaloosa Gelding.
Ms. Cook asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating Patrick. On October 11, 2016, when Ms. Cook went to go feed Patrick and his pasture mates, she noticed Patrick was missing. She explained that they have searched surrounding area and found no trace of Patrick. They have found no evidence of where he could get out (found no break in the fence, the gate was closed and everyone else was in and there). Kathy Cook has notified Thurston County Sheriff Department of the missing horse. We have verified that Thurston County Sheriff is handling this case as a theft.
Stolen Horse International, a nonprofit organization also known as NetPosse.com, is well known as the “lost and found’ place for horses on the internet for the equine industry. NetPosse.com offers horse theft and equine ID education and assist in search and recovery of stolen or missing horses, as well as other equine equipment.
“Patrick is a very cute, friendly horse that anyone can handle.”, says Kathy Cook. “Just two days before his disappearance, a family had decided they would purchase Patrick for their little boy but the sale was not finalized. Now, this little boy is heartbroken because his horse has disappeared.” Ms. Cook went on to tell Stolen Horse International, that Patrick is a small POA and will not get any larger than he is now. She is afraid that someone may have taken him from the property and that they might think he is going to grow into a larger horse. Patrick is not built to carry heavy loads. The little boy’s family is helping Ms. Cook search for Patrick.
On October 14, 2016, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its website, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Cook and, in short order, began distributing the information via their NetPosse Alert (the horse community’s Amber Alert) on the Internet to hundreds of social media groups and private email contacts in an effort to rally the public to help the family.
You will find Patrick’s webpage with information and a printable flyer in his NetPosse.com listing, which is where any updates or leads will be posted. People interested in helping can search for report number NR005073 or use this direct link on the NetPosse.com site: https://netposse.com/view_report.asp?reportid=5073
“Circulating Patrick’s flyer and the NetPosse.com Alert nationwide is imperative, as he could be anywhere by now. These flyers are one tool that brings home many horses and must be posted in as many public places as possible,” says Debi Metcalfe, founder of Stolen Horse International. “And remember, not everyone has internet access. Please post Patrick’s flyer in public places as well.”
Pictures, flyer, contact information, updates and other information are on the NetPosse webpage to identify this case quickly when calling in a tip. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Kathy Cook, Thurston County Sheriff Department or Stolen Horse International with any information.
