Missing Appy Gelding!

Well..karma's a brat, but I love this horse, so I'm gonna try and help the owner out even though she kinda messed me over on my heart horse :/

Anywho..Ace apparently went missing from the Pittsburgh (PA) airport and is believed to have been put on the wrong flight.

About Ace:
"Rescued" Appaloosa gelding
About 15.1-15.2hh
Sorrel with a large blanket
THICK bone
I believe he's aroune 15 years old.
I'm trying to upload more pictures, but my phone's being stupid/ridiculous so I'll get more up sometime tomorrow when I get on the computer.
This is the only picture I currently have, me running him in a gaming class last year, he looks exactly the same now.

Anywho, if anyone knows/sees/hears anything..I'd appreciate it tons, as I'm sure his owner would as well.

I'm debating putting it on netposse, seeing as there's a fee and it isn't my horse. Nor will the owner speak to me, or I'd suggest the site to her.

I still cant see a horse and owner getting on the wrong flight.the people checking tickets should have caught that . I think theres more to this story that you arent being told or that maybe nobody actually know about.add a missing person to all of it and the police will be all over this.
I cant even find anything on the internet about this,shouldnt it have made news.I agree with verona, maybe the plan was not to go to alaska.
Id call animal controll and see if they found a horse--my friend fell off and lost a horse near a highway and they said if the horse got too close to put people in danger near a busy road theyd have put the horse down.

Id call to check if they seen them- not sure if theyd have to say something or try to find an owner but they probably wouldnt mention it publicly -they never really do.
I just thought with a missing person involved they wouldve mentioned something on the news about it. I just read the fantasy post thing to and cant believe people actually do that.just keep uss updated this is so unusual.hope both horse and rider are okay though.

If there is a missing underage child I dont see how the police wouldnt
Be involved. That doesnt sit well with me if the police havnt been notified yet.
Honestly, I'm really confused about all this and definitely wish I'd have waited until I read the flyer myself to post anything.

What I do know is Tucker is still a minor, so I would imagine the ticket was bought by a legal adult. Either of his parents or owner/old owner of this horse (I can't see her selling this gelding, maybe free leased) would have bought the tickets I would assume.

And just because I saw the thread that got closed earlier about "fantasy posts"..this isn't one of them(;
Not sure if that's what a few of you were insinuating or not, just making a point.

I'm honestly beyond confused because I feel that the police and airlines would have had this sorted out within a few days, not however long they've been trying to find them apparently. I had no idea Tucker went missing too, I was originally told that this lady's horse (her personal show horse) went missing from the airport.
Next time I'll definitely be going to look for myself before I say/think anything of it.

So can you clarify who this tucker is thats a minor?thats where im getting the kid part is there or isnt there a missing kid since it sounds like the ticket had to bought by an adult for him
So there was a missing kid but its not related to the missing horse?im sure members of the forum are as confused as you are right now.this is ver hard to glad the horse isnt missing anymore and hope for the safe return of tucker.
