The dog who caused quite a media frenzy last week for causing a huge traffic jam on Chicago's Kennedy Expressway has just been found. The black rescued pitbull named "Hope" was reported found this afternoon, over a week since her disappearance from a family member's home on October 13th.
Hope spent the evening of Monday October 14th running through the express lanes on the Kennedy, causing a traffic jam that lasted until nearly 10pm, and then disappeared. Despite efforts to catch Hope, she gave IDOT workers, concerned motorists, and state police the slip and has been missing until this afternoon.
Visiting from Rochester, Minnesota, parents Mary Jo and Dan Dorman were devastated that Hope was lost in Chicago, and their son who lives in the Wicker Park area had been searching for Hope with the help of local friends. Their son, Chris Dorman confirmed this afternoon around 12:30pm that a dog that was just turned in at Animal Control was in fact their beloved "Hope."
