KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Hall of Fame third baseman George Brett took to Twitter early Wednesday to find his beloved dog Charlie, who went missing during a storm that rolled through the Kansas City area.
Brett sent out a tweet shortly before midnight that read: “Please help: My dog has gone missing. His name is Charlie and he is a black labradoodle. HELP Please. Pic to follow!”
Brett’s son, Jackson Brett, also tweeted about the missing dog. Local television and radio stations joined Royals fans in getting the word out.
Brett tweeted shortly before 8:30 a.m. that Charlie had been found.
The former Royals star opened a Twitter account on May 4, but had tweeted only a few times to his 11,000-plus followers before his dog went missing.
