STOLEN EQUINE, – Quicksilver’s Marco Polo – California
Malibu (Los Angeles County), CA Monday, October 24, 2016
On Saturday October 22, 2016 Barbara Lyons' miniature horse, Marco Polo, was reported stolen from his secure pen at the ranch he has been boarded at for over a decade. Marco Polo is an 18-year-old Liver Chestnut Miniature Gelding.
Ms. Lyons asked Stolen Horse International for assistance in locating Marco Polo. On October 22, 2016, Ms. Lyons reported her miniature horse is missing and that they have evidence to suggest that he has been stolen. Barbara Lyons has notified Los Angeles County Sheriff Department of the stolen horse.
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.
“My Mother is severely disabled.”, says Holly Lyons, daughter of Barbara Lyons. “My Mother is extremely distraught and heartbroken that the horse she has owned since he was a baby has been taken from her. She is worried for his safety and welfare and just wants him returned now.” Ms. Lyons went on to tell Stolen Horse International, that their horses are part of their family. She explained that they love Marco Polo and want him home.
On October 23, 2016, Stolen Horse International, Inc. received the first online report on its web site, www.NetPosse.com, filed by Lyons 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.

“Circulating Marco Polo’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 Marco Polo’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.
