KAMLOOPS - A dog that escaped the flames that tore through a family home in Barnhartvale nearly a month ago is still missing. 

Janelle Andrews and her boyfriend Cory Lien lost everything they owned after their home caught fire Aug. 21. Both of their dogs made it out safely before the walls came down, but one of the dogs, Aurora, died from her injuries a few days later. The second dog made a run for it and the family hasn't been able to catch up with her since.

Still, the couple has hope they’ll be reunited with Jasmine, who has been spotted numerous times in the city since the fire.

“Last Wednesday, a good friend saw her on the bank of the North Thompson River. We think she’s just kind of travelling up and down the river,” Andrews says.

In the meantime, the couple has been walking the shoreline and putting up posters.

Jasmine is six-year-old brown and white German shepherd-husky cross. The couple offering a cash reward for her return.

If you see the dog, contact Andrews at 250-319-0228 or Lien at 250-318-5972.
