TALLAHASSEE, FL. (WTXL) — A family is asking for the community's help in finding a dog who has disappeared just weeks after her owner was murdered in Wakulla County.

The Hill family's dog, Luna, has been missing since February 13. Amy Hill says Luna's owner was recently killed in an act of domestic violence.

For the Hill family, Luna is more than just the family pet. She is one of the only memories left of their daughter.

"We need to know. Even if the worst happen -- even maybe she got hit on the road -- we would just like to know," said Jason Hill, Luna's Owner.

Jason Hill and his wife Amy want answers following the disappearance of their sweet Luna.

Another painful loss for a family going through so much.

Coping with the loss of their daughter has made losing Luna even harder.

Jason says with Luna it's the little things they miss most.

"She took up the whole bed when she crawled up in it. Just loving always wanted to be petted and touched," said Jason.

While Luna has a microchip, to help track down her owners it's not going to be so easy.

The Hills say the chip is linked to their daughter. They're now working to get that changed.

In the meantime, their community of friends in Tallahassee are rallying behind them in hopes of bringing Luna home.

"It's such a blessing and we are so overwhelmed to have so many people help us look for Luna. I just -- I don't even know how to express how grateful we are for everybody helping us out," said Amy Hill.

"I was amazed at how much our family and friends came together under these circumstances because this is something most people hopefully don't ever have to learn how to deal with," said Jason.

Despite dealing with tragedy, the Hills remain hopeful that they'll see Luna again.

"I just hope a good Samaritan finds her and that she's okay -- and that they can bring her home," said Amy.

The Hill family says the husky is black and white with different colored eyes and has a pink collar. They believe she could be wandering around the Crawfordville area.
