“Bailee” escaped from a Plum Grove Estates yard and then was apparently taken by an unknown female in a dark compact car near Frankly Yours Restaurant, 1580 East Algonquin Road, Schaumburg.

Palatine police received a report on Saturday of a theft of a dog in the area of Thorntree Lane and Algonquin Road Palatine, IL. Police received a report that an unknown subject called a family dog to come to a car, and then fled with the dog. The dog named “Bailee” is a light-gold color, 3-year-old, 52-pound Golden Retreiver.

About 3:00 Saturday June 15, 2013, a neighbor of the owner witnessed the dog run to the car in the parking lot of Frankly Yours restaurant parking lot, 1580 E Algonquin Rd, Schaumburg, IL along the border of Schaumburg and Palatine just east of Meacham Road. The neighbor saw the dog get into a dark-colored compact car. The driver or vehicle occupant was described as a female, 35-40 years-old with short blond hair.

No “found dog” report has been filed with local police, therefore the dog is presumed stolen.

Owner Michael Gerdes, who lives in the Plum Grove Estates neighborhood with his family, urges anyone with information about “Bailee” to call him at 847-612-1675. There is a reward and Gerdes says “no questions asked” are the terms of the return.

Gerdes has contacted all police departments, animal hospitals, veterinarians and shelters in the area.
