CLAIREMONT, Calif. (KGTV) -- A dog that went missing after a plane crashed into a home in Clairemont has been found.

The dog, named Charlee, went missing while on a walk after her owner, Alice Prince, said the plane crash caused a power line to snap, scaring Charlee. 

Prince said Charlee was hit by a car shortly after running off. Charlee was found beneath a boat in someone's yard. 

Prince said the dog is limping, but doesn't appear to have any major injuries.
