She said the most recent sightings have been near the SW 104 and Hiwassee area and near the area south of the Interstate 240 and Walker Avenue.

Some calls have said they saw the kangaroo traveling with a herd of deer.

“I don't know if it's possible that she's there, but it's worth watching out for,” Menhusen said.

Menhusen's family has responded to sightings in Lincoln, Pottawattamie and Oklahoma counties. The animal could still be moving around, but it's also possible she's been struck by a vehicle or picked up by someone who intends to keep her.

Menhusen said anyone who thinks they've seen Lucy or her tracks should take pictures, if possible, and visit the Facebook page “Bring Lucy Sparkles Home” or call 990-4867.
