Ryder the Akita went missing after his owner was in a car accident on HWY 287 near Owl Canyon on Sunday. 

Anyone between Fort Collins and Red Feather Lakes is asked to be on the lookout for Ryder, a shy black, white and brown American Akita [PHOTO]. Ryder's owner says he is sweet, but is probably cold and scared.

'Ryder ran from a car accident today,' his owners posted on PawBoost. 'Headed from Ft Collins up to Red Feather Lakes. Please please if you see Ryder he’s shy and a teddy bear. Thank you so much. He’s my baby.'

If you think you may have seen Ryder, or have found him, you can contact the owners here.
