Owners search for lost dog

The owners of a New Rochelle dog say it is unlike him to just disappear.

Winston, a 2-year-old teacup yorkie, has been missing since Saturday morning. The owners, a mother and daughter from New Rochelle, say the dog was last seen in their home's backyard and may have been lured from there.

"I let him outside," says Christina Ophanites, who saved $750 to buy the dog two years ago. "It was too quiet. I went in the backyard and starting calling his name ? and nothing."
