Law enforcement would like to talk to the hikers. Where did they find the dog?

From a HCSO press release of 5/15/2013: The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and Shasta County Sheriff’s Office is seeking assistance from the public with the identity of two hikers who were on the beach at the end of Lighthouse Road, Petrolia on Wednesday May 8, 2013 during the late evening hours.

Scenario:Miller family dog "Gigi"

Investigators were aware on the night of the homicide that the Miller family pet “Gigi”, a tricolored Dachshund, was unaccounted for.  On Monday May 13, 2013, Humboldt County Detectives learned that a woman from the Petrolia area was in possession of Gigi.  This subject was contacted and it was confirmed the Dachshund she possessed was Gigi.  The woman told detectives she was on the beach at the end of Lighthouse Road in Petrolia during the late evening hours of Wednesday May 8, 2013.  Two hikers were walking off the beach and were carrying Gigi.  The hikers said they found the dog and were not able to locate an owner.  The woman offered to care for the dog and took possession of Gigi.  Names were not exchanged with the hikers and their identity is not known.  It would be greatly beneficial to this investigation and the search of Shane Miller, if the location Gigi was originally found was known.  

The Humboldt and Shasta County Detectives are asking the persons who located Gigi call the following numbers to provide that information.  Shasta County (530-245-6025) or Humboldt County (707-445-7251).

Gigi remains in the care of the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office and arrangements are being made for the safe return of Gigi to members of the Miller family.  Gigi was in excellent health when she was found by the hikers and injury free.  Attached are photographs of Gigi.

Update on Search for Miller

The search for triple homicide suspect Shane Miller continues this morning.  Efforts are a continuation of yesterday’s tactics, consisting of foot searches in the King Range trails and door to door searches of residences and cabins in the Petrolia, Honeydew and Shelter Cove communities.  As a reminder there is a 5:00 PM community meeting scheduled at the Honeydew School.  The King Range Conservation Area remains temporarily closed to all recreational activities.
