Anita Maharaj is dealing with the loss of her dog.

“My parents thought he was with me and I thought he was with them,” she said at their house, but Milo abruptly disappeared from the premises when Anita Maharaj extinguished the car lights in the driveway.

Anita Maharaj went to a dog park in Morgan’s Bay, Western Cape, where Milo had been a regular visitor before going missing for more than two months on Thursday night.

“I just feel like I need to do something,” she said. “He has not come back home and we don’t know what happened to him.”

“I need my boy back,” she said. “He does not eat, he does not sleep at night.”

“That’s when all hell broke loose,” she said.

Maharaj said she spoke with a security guard at her subdivision. Maharaj said he told her he saw Milo walk out the gate and tried to catch him but couldn’t.

Maharaj began posting Milo’s picture on websites for lost dogs, as people started commenting that they had seen their pet’s photo and were excited to have found it.

To find Milo, Katz posted flyers around the neighborhood and used her pet dogs to track him. She eventually tracked him down but couldn’t return him as he found a new owner.

It takes a while for parents and kids alike to get their groove going with traveling overseas, including international travel where schedules on the other side of the world are often different.

“He was all over the place,” said his mom, Diana Maharaj as she described Milo’s whereabouts when he first disappeared in January. “We don’t know where he went.”

Maharaj gave her son a GPS device before traveling to San Antonio, Texas, for a month-long training course. The family lives in Belhar, Western Cape.

“It was supposed to be his last trip and it turned out to be a nightmare,” she said. “He would walk in the street while I was driving.”

Maharaj’s family has been calling and e-mailing her every two days since she left, but Milo wouldn’t let go of his mom.

“I’m very proud of him,” she said. “He’s my baby boy and he just won’t let go.”

Maharaj returned after four weeks to a house with a new puppy in the backyard but no Milo, who was still missing.

Maharaj said she spoke with a security guard at her subdivision. Maharaj said he told her she saw Milo walk out the gate and tried to catch him but couldn’t.

Maharaj said this has been a difficult time without her Yorkie.” This is actually the first time he’s gone away and nobody’s seen him,” she said.

Katz said Milo hasn’t been seen since. She believes the woman in the photo is responsible.

Maharaj has been filling out lost-and-found reports with police and PetRescue, a website for tracking missing animals. She’s posted flyers around the neighborhood and used her pet dogs to track him down.

Diana Maharaj said they are not sure if Milo was stolen or just ran away, but the family is devastated by Milo’s disappearance.

“It takes a while for parents and kids alike to get their groove going with traveling overseas, including international travel where schedules on the other side of the world are often different,” she said.

If anyone knows anything about this case, please contact Katz at 954-494-0260 and mention there’s a $2,000 reward for their lost Yorkie.
