Rescuers search for pet Chihuahua that fell into storm drain in Vista

VISTA, Calif. - Search crews hope to find a 18-year-old Chihuahua that fell down a storm drain in Vista.

The incident occurred Saturday afternoon in the 1700 block of Creekside Lane. A firefighter was lowered down into the storm drain to search for the dog. Crews also sent equipment in to try and get a view of the Chihuahua to see if it possibly wandered further down the drain.

Firefighters worked for several hours Saturday trying to locate the dog, but had no luck.

They say they are concerned about the pet having no food or water. 10News has learned rescuers set a trap with food, hoping to lure the dog in and pull it to safety. Crews returned to the trap Sunday morning but the dog was not there.
