PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — Missy Watt is missing her 10-year-old dog Bitty.

"She's my world, I rescued her. I worked with her every day," she said.

The three-and-a-half pound dog disappeared last Wednesday afternoon.

"I went inside to get my blind dog to bring her out to go potty, and I noticed that my little Bitty was not out here when she should have been."

Missy at first thought Bitty went down the street to visit a neighbor's dog, but Bitty never came home. Missy searched for her.

"We got to talking with a neighbor and they were like let's check our security."

Surveillance video appears to show a car driving down the street, stopping then opening the door. You can barely see Bitty, but she walks to the car then disappears. The car then drives off. Though the teacup, Yorkie, chihuahua mix is 10-years-old, to Missy she's the baby of the family.

"I just want my puppy back."

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office says a report was filed on the missing dog. Meanwhile Missy and her neighbors like Karen Brogan are on the look-out.

"I would love her to get the dog back. But number one, whoever took the dog, please be kind to it." Missy said, "Just return her, drop her right back off, no questions asked, I just want my puppy back."
