MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - Memphis police are now investigating how another dog vanished from the Memphis Animal Shelter. Just a year ago it was a pit bull named Kapone, now it's a lab mix named Nola.
Memphis police investigators were at the animal shelter Thursday asking questions. It comes one week after the shelter administrator began an investigation of his own.
Last week Victoria Henry told abc24.com about her missing dog Nola. It was picked up along with her other dog, Uno, last month when they got loose from their yard and were taken to the shelter. When she went to pick up the dogs Uno was there, but Nola disappeared.
"I don't know where Nola is, nobody knows where Nola is," Henry said, "She's my baby. I miss her."
A week after Administrator James Rogers began his investigation he's baffled. Adoption, foster and euthanasia records have been checked. Rogers can't track down what happened.
Rogers admitted a series of employee errors led to this mistake.
Truth is there is a possibility an employee killed the dog then covered his or her tracks by fudging paperwork.
Adding to the mystery, Rogers thought video from surveillance cameras stayed in a computer system 30 days, but it's only kept 2 weeks which means the video is also gone.
Rogers says police may be able to get more answers from employees and have more resources to track down what happens and he welcomes the investigation.
Truth is had employees at the animal shelter responded more quickly we might know what happened to Nola. Henry was told by the operations manager twice that the videotape would be checked and he never followed through.
