Wake family seeking horse lost in storm

— A Willow Spring girl and her family have spent six days looking for a family pet lost in last Saturday's storms.

Animal shelters across central North Carolina reported no significant increase of pets lost when winds over 100 mph scattered debris and damage across the area. But Buddy is not a cat or a dog. He is a horse.

Buddy was pastured near the intersection of 2 Claude and Honeycutt roads. When the fence blew down, Buddy escaped and hasn't been seen since, family members said Friday.
