Deputies search for missing Fayetteville man, dog

Posted April 8, 2013

— The Cumberland County Sheriff's Office was searching Monday for a missing Fayetteville man who left his home last week with his dog and never returned.

Charles Francis Dome, 34, was last seen on April 1. He was reported missing by his girlfriend five days later.

The girlfriend told investigators that she and Dome had been involved in a dispute and that he left their home on Camden Road with the family dog, a pit bull named Tyr.

Dome was last seen on foot with a tent heading toward Hope Mills.

He is white and balding, with blue eyes and a brown beard. He is a tattoo artist with many tattoos, including the words "Betrayal" on his right leg and "Obsession" on his left.

The dog has a collar with its name on it.

Anyone who sees Dome or the dog is asked to call the sheriff's office at 910-323-1500.

    Both Chase and his dog have been found safe. In Florida.

    I don't see the problem, he left. She now seems to regret him leaving, maybe she should've thought of that before pushing him away. She shouldn't have called his bluff.

    Sounds to me like he took his dog and left! I hope they are both OK, but it sounds like it. Girlfriend may not have wanted him to leave......

    Sounds like a grown man left of his own free will after getting into a tiff with his woman. Even took a tent? Sounds to me like he just needed to get away for a while. Why the manhunt?

    Praying for a safe return of both of them.

    I hope that Chase and Tyr are found soon... and safe. If anyone in the areas in question sees either of them, please know that Tyr is a very timid pit. When I first met the dog he was scared of his own shadow. The dog is an absolute sweetheart. Keeping both these guys in my thoughts and prayers.
