BROOKLINE, Mass. (AP) - Author Dennis Lehane is offering an unusual reward for the person who finds his family's beloved missing beagle.
Lehane says he'll name a character in his next book after whoever finds Tessa, who disappeared from the family's home in Brookline, Mass., this week.
He says on his Facebook page that Tessa jumped a fence at the home, and even though she has been micro-chipped, she was not wearing her tags.
Lehane says Tessa is "smart, fast, and immeasurably sweet."
Lehane wrote "Mystic River," ''Gone Baby Gone," ''Shutter Island" and other books.
