It's been nearly a month since 12-year-old Shea Mineau's horse “Cherokee” ran off in full tack and saddle. Despite sightings as far away as Marshfield the horse has still not been reunited with its owner.
A $500 reward is now being offered for information that leads to his return.
According to a Price County newspaper, Shea finally saved up money for the 9-year old black and white paint, but during her birthday party on Oct. 11 a friend was riding the horse when he began to trot, the rider slid off, but Cherokee keep going.
The family said they found tracks, but horse seems to have disappeared. Friends and volunteers searched for the horse from the air and on foot covering miles of woods and fields in the area about 11 miles from Butternut farm.
An account to help raise reward money has been set up at the Northwoods Community Credit Union on Hwy. 13 in Park Falls under, “Shea Mineau.”
Anyone who recalls seeing a wandering black and white horse can call Jim Mineau at (715) 661 0682.
