first_imgWhen she heard the news that a little brown terrier name Daisy had gone missing after a 28-vehicle crash, Cindy Koch knew she had to help.“After I cried my eyes out, I said ‘Guys, who wants to go,’” Koch said.Though she lives on Vashon Island in the Puget Sound, Koch and a small group drove the 165 miles Wednesday to put up laminated fliers in the Ridgefield area.They blanketed the Interstate 5 southbound Gee Creek rest area, the nearest rest stop to the scene of the crash, and other spots where people reportedly saw the small dog running around.Daisy belongs to the family of Matthew Scott, the 39-year-old Oregon man who died in the crash, which occurred at about 10 a.m. Feb. 6 on southbound I-5 near Milepost 13 south of Ridgfield. The pileup took place shortly after a snowstorm hit Clark County. Daisy, who was wearing a collar with tags, left Scott’s Ford Explorer after the collision.“The family is so overwhelmed with the tragedy that they’re facing so if there’s anything we can do to be of assistance to them, we’re more than happy to do it,” said Koch, director of Second Chance Dogs in Roy. “It didn’t appear that there was an organized group helping this little dog.”last_img
