GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) – Authorities are searching for a dognapper and a missing Bichon Frise worth about $10,000 that was snatched from a South Carolina home.

Citing the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, news outlets report the dog named Leah is a 4-year-old “breeding champion” who went missing on Oct. 13.
