A Yorkie that was stolen from the stoop of a Queens home last month was found wandering in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.
A man says he found Linda the Yorkie wandering around the park and recognized her from a missing dog flyer. It’s unclear when she was dropped off there.
Last month, surveillance cameras captured a woman snatching Linda from a Corona stoop. The dog’s owners, Melba and Wilifredo Filiberty, were visiting their daughter when Linda was stolen right outside her home by a woman.
Although the family searched frantically for the dog and even started a hashtag — #SaveLinda — their effors were unsuccessful and they returned to Florida.
Melba and Wilifredo are now heading back to New York City for a joyous reunion with their beloved pooch.
“I’m mad, I’m sad,” said Melba last month.
“We’re losing our baby. To us, it’s a child, it’s the one who keeps us company, it’s the one who travels with us everywhere we go,” Wilifredo said of Linda, who’s disable with a spinal injury.
Police are still searching for the woman who got out of her car and took Linda. But for now, her family is happy she’s coming home.
