Palacios said police found her car and personal belongings, but her dog - who was in the car - is still missing. Now, she's making a plea to get her dog back.

"I decided to get a dog because I was living by myself, to have some company," Palacios said. "Now, this guy took my only company I have... I spend a lot of time with him. So I decided to have a dog for some company, but the dog changed my life."

At last check, police had not made any arrests.
