After more than a month missing, Jesse James dog, Coco has been found!
The news comes after a month of wondering where Coco went and several rewards offered.
James announced the news on his Facebook Page on Wednesday evening;
” THEY FOUND HER!!!!!!!!!!
The Amazing officers at Newport PD Found COCO!!!
I guess she fell through a low basement window down 6 feet in a narrow window well. In a vacant house in the neighborhood and could not get out. SHES BEEN IN THERE A MONTH!!
I just got the call from Dispatcher Andrea Stout that the home owner came back and for us her stuck inside. Officer Mathew Sardinha(pictured) is on the way to Newport Animal Hospital with her now. I’m just Blown Away. I’ve been praying so hard to find her. God really does Answer prayers!!
I just have to say thank you so everyone that posted and posted and tagged and reposted and those who searched and put up flyers. You guys made the difference! I am so thankful that you all did this!!
Booking my flight to Rhode Island Now to get my little Coco..

His Messages For Help (In the order they were posted)
If anyone around Newport Rhode Island sees this Frenchy “Coco” please call 888-269-0666 ASAP.
She been missing since about 2:PM this afternoon.
Possibly got out an open gate on Narragansett Ave near the Cliff Walk.
She is a smaller in size Frenchy and very friendly.
Again please call me at 888-269-0666 if you have seen her.
Thanks Jesse James”
On Wednesday, James posted the following update.
Very kind of professional K9 trainer Justin ( @mathieuk9 ) brought over 2 of his best search dogs. We were kind of thinking that coyotes might have got her. Both dogs searched independent and took the exact same route. Right out the open gate and up the street. Both ended at the exact same location (see map)
The good news is that coyotes didn’t kill her and somebody grabbed her. The bad news is that most people that visit this area are from out of town.
So please share this post and Coco’s pic with anyone you know that was in The Newport RI area yesterday.
Coco is a sweetheart and most likely jumped right in somebody’s car.
I’m offering $2000 Cash No Questions asked for her safe return.
Any info please call 888-269-0666
