MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - The search continues for a missing ten-week-old puppy who was riding shotgun in a car Thursday night when the vehicle was stolen while stopped outside a Madison mall.

The Madison Police Department reported in an update Friday that the car, a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze, was recovered in the 600 block of Segoe Road; however, the brown and white Boston Terrier named Malloy was not in it.

In its original statement, MPD indicated both Malloy and the car were stolen when a food delivery worker stopped outside the Buffalo Wild Wings, at East Towne Mall. The victim told investigators he left the car running when he went into the restaurant to pick up a delivery.

Officers responded to the scene around 10:30 p.m. where the driver described seeing two people hop into the car and drive away. The police department added they are concerned for the puppy’s well-being and say he likely won’t survive without proper care or if he were abandoned.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Madison Police Department. Tips can be called in at 608-255-2345 or submitted online at
