A disabled Veteran from Cushing says he lost his service dog in Oklahoma City over the weekend, and he needs her back.

Marcus Bagwell was an Army medic, who served in Iraq a decade ago. He says his service dog "Rayne" has helped him deal with post-traumatic stress issues he says that can be crippling.

Bagwell says he brought "Rayne" to a barbecue Saturday at a friends' home off 36th street and Virginia Avenue. He says he let go of her leash for a short time so she could use relieve herself, but he says she disappeared.

Bagwell is offering a $500 reward.

"She gives me so much support, emotionally, and otherwise," said Bagwell. "I need her."

"Rayne" is a 5-month-old Pit Bull. She's wearing a black collar with spikes on it. And her leash is blue, with purple stripes.
