Even though I've received a number of calls now about various people seeing a beagle that supposedly looks like Barbie in a wide range of locations, I have had no luck seeing her.

Last night, a couple called to say they'd seen Barbie near Marion High school, and they met us there to help find Barbie, but she was no where to be found once we arrived on the scene.

This morning, John and I followed up on the various calls reporting Barbie having been seen in the graveyard, on State Road 9 going North, and other similar sightings.

We dropped off posters at the factory near Marion High school, and drove through that neighborhood again. No one we talked to this morning had seen her.

This evening, I again received a report sighting Barbie in the vicinity of the High School, but again we were unable to find her once we arrived. The fact that the dog that has been so difficult for any of the people who saw her to catch sounds very much like Barbie's M.O., as she's been skittish around strangers. For once though, I really wish she would allow someone to approach her!

If the dog by the High School doesn't turn out to be Barbie, I will be very disappointed.
