On Dec. 5, a woman called 911 and reported that a man tossed Rookie, a 4-year-old German shepherd, off the SE 59 bridge over Interstate 40 in eastern Oklahoma County.
Rookie's life was saved by the extra efforts of Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper Jennifer Fisher, an Oklahoma County sheriff's department animal welfare worker, an animal shelter in Harrah and Oklahoma State University's veterinary teaching hospital.
But investigators have not been so lucky solving the case.
The woman who reported the crime has not been located.
No arrests have been made although the reward for information in the case is up to $7,500.
“We would like to wrap this case up,” Myers said. “It's imperative to the case that the woman who called 911 contacts us.”
