Citizens Rally to Bring Durango Home

Local activist Kit Rudd's horse, Durango, is still missing and Amarillo residents are rallying to bring him home.

Soon after the article by The Amarillo Pioneer regarding Durango's disappearance was released, readers immediately began sharing it to spread awareness. Local residents have also reported talking to neighbors and checking local neighborhoods to find Durango.

Sandra McCartt, a local businesswoman, put this tip on Facebook to help search for Durango:

"Ok folks, no sight of this horse. The next thing we can do is anybody traveling on I-40 East of West, I-27 North of South or 87 toward Dumas. Any highway leading out of Amarillo. When you stop for gas or a pit stop ask the people in the gas station or convenience store if they have notiiced a trailer with a gray horse. If they have ask for a description of the pickup or vehicle pulling the trailer. Ask if the person with the horse bought gas or food did they pay with a credit card. Anybody who thinks they saw anyone with a gray horse in a trailer get their name, contact number and get that information to APD Sheriff's offices or to Kit."

The search for Durango continues and residents are ready to see him come home.

If you have any information on Durango's whereabouts, you are asked to call Kit Rudd at (806) 433-3678.
