"Orange County Choppers" star Jesse James is pleading with the public and his fans to help find his beloved dog Coco, and a few of his celebrity fans are lending a hand and support to him.
Several days ago, James posted on social media about losing his french bulldog. After the pooch didn't show up, he issued a $5,000 award to anyone who could direct his team to the missing animal.
The star and his family had been spending some time in Rhode Island but were heading back to their home in Texas. James has been giving updates via social media but it seems they have not had any luck.
He posted the following message, "URGENT If anyone around Newport Rhode Island sees this Frenchy “Coco” please call 888-269-0666 ASAP. She’s been missing since about 2:PM this afternoon. Possibly got out an open gate on Narragansett Ave near the Cliff Walk. She is a smaller in size Frenchy and very friendly. Again please call me at 888-269-0666 if you have seen her. Thanks Jesse James."
Celebrity friends, like Dana White and Josh Brolin, have reached out to the star to add support, even sharing the reward post to their vast followings.
Sadly, Jesse posted a message seemingly admitting he thinks he may not see the dog again, saying, "Jasper and Myrtle getting some last looks at the view before we head back to Texas. Things won’t be the same minus Coco keeping everyone in-line. It’s really crazy how attached we become to our dogs. Coco and I had such a strong connection. She followed me in the shop all day every day. When @alexisdejoria was out of town she always slept with me(under the covers). If you look at my highlighted stories “James dogs”. You can see a bunch of clips of her at her best. I know we have several other dogs, but she was my number one. It’s a pretty hard pill to swallow, knowing I may never see her again."
If anyone has seen Coco, please contact the number above.
Prayers go out to Jesse and his family.
