The U City Loop being named one of the 10 Great Streets in America prompts me to post an update on the search for Mattie the dog, who was in a car that was stolen from that area.
Last November, Tom & Alice Matthews were visiting St. Louis from Michigan. They parked their car in the Church's Fried Chicken parking lot at the intersection of Delmar and Skinker, with Mattie inside. After window shopping on the Loop for almost an hour, they discovered their car -- and Mattie -- gone, stolen.
Almost a year later, Mattie is still missing, despite a huge reward. His owners have made multiple trips to St. Louis to follow up on tips and leads. Visit Mattie's web site for information.
