Three or four sightings in the same area on the same day has given those searching for Copper, a missing dog mistaken for a coyote, hope she might still be in the area.
Since it was announced that Copper was mistakenly released, many in the community have been actively searching the area around Jones Lane in Franklin County.
There was one report of a dog matching the description seen playing with a group of children, but the owner Lori Goodlett, says by the time she got to the area the dog was no where to be found.
Goodlett says it's been a roller coaster ride of getting word of a sighting, but come up empty handed.
Others say the sighting are giving them hope the dog is still in the area, even those like Larry Estep who have never met or seen the dog before.
Estep says, "I'm not really interested in the reward or anything. I just want to find the dog and bring it home."
Animal Activist Trudi Johnson feels the same, she says the sighting are giving her hope a reunion soon.
