Newport Buzz Emergency Broadcast System: We have a missing cat in the 5th Ward!

Alright folks we have a missing 2-year-old tabby cat in the 5th Ward. Did you hear me? THE. 5TH. WARD!!!

Leo is an indoor cat and not used to being outside. He’s very friendly, though a bit shy, and does not wear a collar.

He was last seen on Roseneath Avenue.

Our fugitive has been on the run for 36 hours.. Average foot speed over uneven ground barring injuries is 4 miles-per-hour. That gives us a radius of 144 miles.

What I need out of each and every one of you is a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse, boathouse, gatehouse and doghouse in that area. Checkpoints go up every 15 miles.

Your fugitive’s name is Leo. Go get him!

Be on the lookout for this cat and report any sightings.

Please share and call 401-835-4661 when spotted or found.
