Man left a widower and homeless after tornado is reunited with missing dog

If life couldn’t get any more tragic for a Illinois man, there might be a small ray of sunshine in his otherwise devastating week.  After losing everything in a tornado, Clem Schultz, had a surprise delivered to him Saturday.

“A man who lost his wife in the deadly tornadoes that struck Illinois last week received a lift Saturday after his missing dog was found safe.

Clem Schultz’s dog Missy, a white German shepherd, disappeared during the tornado Thursday that killed Clem’s wife, Geraldine, and destroyed the couple’s Fairdale home. 

On Saturday, an electric utility worker surveying debris spotted the dog in a field and alerted police, who then tracked down the family, NBC Chicago reports.

Tyler Rowan, the grandson of Clem Schultz, said the dog — apparently still traumatized by the storm — ran away from everyone for 2.5 miles until they were able to catch up with her.

Since then, Clem hasn’t let go of the dog, Rowan told the station. 

“We are all happy she is home!” read a post on a Facebook page set up in the search for the dog.”

Let’s hope that Clem and Missy both recover as much as one can from a loss like this, as soon as possible. Our hearts go out to them as they attempt to rebuild their lives.
