LACONIA - A man who lives in a home that was targeted by a "swatting" scam, is searching for his dog who escaped during a police investigation.
Police received a 911 call Friday morning, from a woman who reported she was being held hostage by a man with a gun inside a home located on Cleveland Place.
"We attempted contact inside the residence," Police Captain, Matt Canfield said. "But we didn't get an answer."
After what was more than an hour, police were able to reach the homeowner and discovered that he was at work while the house was empty at the time of the hostage report.
"I got a phone call saying that the police were at my house so I called the police station and they wanted to know where I was in the house," home owner Eric Carbonneau said. "I told them I was at work and my door was open and to help themselves."
At some point, Carbonneau's dog - a microchipped female German Shephard named "Schnitzel," escaped and hasn't been back since.
Schnitzel was last seen wearing a red collar and police are urging anyone with information to call the department at 524-5252.
