GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - Two local families had an Easter Sunday for the record books after someone returned a missing dog to its owners.
"I will never forget this Easter because I got my dog back," Nour Nassar said.
Nassar's husband was in a horrific car accident earlier this week. Their five-year-old English bulldog, Belly, was in the car. When Nassar's husband woke up in the hospital, no one had any idea where the dog was.
"We called Georgia State Patrol and animal control and they said there never was a dog there, so we heard from witnesses that someone stole the dog from the scene," Nassar said.
Sunday Nassar learned the real story.
Chasity Frye was sitting in backed up traffic from the accident on I-85 when she said her nephew noticed a dog walking down the highway.
"He jumped out and grabbed the dog and we had no clue what to do with it because it had no collar and wasn't microchipped," Chasity Frye said.
Frye said her boyfriend got a message on Facebook with a link to the FOX 5 story about the missing dog.
"We immediately contacted the family," Frye said.
Sunday morning Frye returned Belly to Nassar and her husband.
"I am just so grateful that my dog is home," Nassar said. "We can tell Belly really likes them so we want them to still be apart of her life."
"It's crazy that Jesus came back from the dead and on the same day, Belly came back to her family," Frye said.
