BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - A $1,000 reward has been posted to find Tillie and bring her home to the Sisksnius family in Berkeley Heights. Tillie is a female, four-year old, black lab Australian shepherd mix who went missing New Year's Eve near Emerson Lane and Planfield Avenue in Berkeley Heights.

Family, friends, neighbors and strangers alike have searched the streets, parks and woods of the surrounding towns with no sightings of Tillie. With the help of many, flyers have been distributed and posted in and around the area. 

The family has visited animal shelters, vets, and notified all of the surrounding police departments and lost pet agencies.

"I'm not giving up hope -  with this many people looking and spreading the word, we have to find her. We are praying that she is safe," said Tammy Sisksnius, Tillie's owner. "It's amazing how Tillie is our family, but the communities are treating her as part of their family as well."

"This community and surrounding towns have been amazing. I'm astonished, with all of these wonderful people, that no one has even had a sighting of her," said Sisksnius. "I'm feeling blessed and hopeful."

It is recommended to not chase Tillie, she is shy but sweet. Call (908)400-3781 or the Summit Animal Shelter at (908)913-0509 if spotted.
