Hutchinson, KS (KSNW) -- The service dog of a blind girl in Kansas was apparently stolen.
5-year-old Andrea Taylor is legally blind, but she can often be found staring out the front window of her Hutchinson home, hoping someone brings back her dog Millie.
"She wasn't ever going to be a normal child. And when Millie come along she was able to have a little more independence. Outside, she was able to run with her siblings."
Doctors never gave Andrea much of a chance. She suffers from cerebral palsy and a multitude of complications that often go with the nerve disorder.
Her family thought they caught a break when they were given Millie -- a pit with experience as a therapy dog.
"Sometimes with a house full of five kids we can't hear her and Millie could alert us Andrea needed help she would either bark or go back and forth to get our attention."
Her kids saw a white, 4-door car pull up on Westridge in front of the house. They called out to Millie, Millie jumped in and no one's seen the dog since.
"It just happened in an instant. They were all in a panic. They know how important this was to Andrea."
The family's filed a police report, but so far there's been no sign of Millie.
"She absolutely loves Millie. She has always been a good night's sleeper. She's not sleeping at night, she's crying all night long."
The Taylors have been offered another dog, but Andrea just wants Millie back. She's still waiting, still crying, still hoping someone has a change of heart and returns her dog.
The family has a small cash reward available for whoever brings their dog back.
