Surveillance video shows woman believed to have missing dog in Newburgh
News 12 has obtained new surveillance video showing a woman believed to have a missing dog from the City of Newburgh.
The video appears to show that woman picking up the puppy last Sunday on Washington Street, putting it in her car and driving away.
The 4-month old husky, Kira, was reported missing to police by her owner, Yareli Loredo, the same day.
Police are now trying to identify that woman and need the public's help to reunite the animal with its owners.

“She picked up the dog with no hesitation,” says Loredo. “She didn’t ask anybody. She didn’t question anybody outside. She just grabbed her.”
Loredo says the video was taken by a neighbor’s security camera moments after the dog escaped from her home across the street. The dog hasn’t been seen or reported found since.
She hoped, at first, that the woman was trying to help protect the puppy from getting hit by cars in the street but is now worried since no one has seemingly come forward about finding the animal.
Kira the husky
City of Newburgh police posted about the missing dog on their Facebook page this week.
Loredo says she’s also checking with Newburgh-area animal shelters but keeps turning up empty-handed.
“I just want her back. If you give her back, you didn’t hurt her, then we can probably just consider it and let you go. We just want our dog.”
Anyone with information is asked to call City of Newburgh police at 845-561-3131.
