Vanessa Williams, who stars as Wilhelmina Slater on “Ugly Betty,” is asking for help in finding her missing Yorkshire Terrier, Enzo, who disappeared from her Chappaqua, N.Y., yard on Monday.
Williams filed a report about the missing dog with Mount Pleasant police late Monday after she returned home from an errand to find Enzo missing from her fenced yard.
Enzo is the second high-profile dog to disappear in the area in recent weeks. Ken Chandler, former publisher of the New York Post, and Dr. Erika Schwartz, an author, have both appealed to the media for help in finding their Dachshund, Gus, who went missing from Teatown Lake on Mother’s Day.
Williams told reporters that she fears a dognapping ring is at work in the area. But Mount Pleasant Police Chief Louis Alagno dismissed the idea and suggested instead that coyotes, which are common in the area, are snatching the small pets.
Chandler and Schwartz have hired a pet detective to help locate their lost dog, as well as a publicist to work with the media.
Chandler and Schwartz have also offered a $2,500 reward for Gus’s safe return.
