After a ten-year-old German shepherd found herself stranded on a Lake Erie ice floe in early February, dozens of people asked what became of her.
According to Monday's Cleveland.com, to this day, nobody knows.
Randy Carter, owner of the lost dog, named "Maya," never saw her again.
Carter told the publication:
"I've checked around places and looked for her, but nothing,"
"I guess it is what it is. I figure she's either gone or living with someone else. I have not dwelled on it very much. It's hard to think about."
Maya wound up in trouble after slipping through a gate which had blown open to her Willowick, Ohio, yard.
Though local police and animal control tried to lure her off of the moving ice, and back to shore, the frightened dog would not come to them.
As the sun set, the rescue efforts were called off and Maya was never seen again.
