It almost has the makings of a Hollywood movie.Yun Tron, left, and Michael Redfeather pose with Shadow, an Australian Kelpie, on Friday, Nov. 8. Shadow went missing for five days after going on a hike with Tron on Halloween at Forest Road 525. After searching tirelessly for five days, from Sycamore Canyon to Doe Mountain, Tron was finally reunited with Shadow.

For five days, 4-year-old Shadow, a 45-pound Australian Kelpie, was lost in the mountains around Sedona with no food or water. What could have turned tragic for his owners — brothers Michael Redfeather and Yun Tron — quickly turned into a show of support from friends as well as complete strangers.

“Hundreds of people across the Verde Valley were looking for my dog,” Redfeather said. “There was a huge network of people helping from the minute he went missing to the minute he was found. I just want to give them all a big hug and thank them for their help.”

Tron said that on Oct. 31 he was bored so he decided to go for a drive off-road and decided to take Shadow along with him. The two went down a trail off of Forest Service Road 525 — one they had never been on before. While Tron was exploring the area, Shadow was busy sniffing the new scents. Normally, Shadow stays within 50 to 100 feet of his owners when on a hike but this time was different.
