Lost dog Maia is safe at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport

In a heartwarming turn of events, Maia, a six-year-old dog who went missing in August at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, has been found safe, according to airport officials.

Maia’s owner, Paula Rodriguez, faced a month of anguish after the dog went missing during her layover in Atlanta. The duo was traveling from the Dominican Republic to California for a vacation. Upon arriving in Atlanta, Rodriguez was notified by border patrol of visa irregularities, forcing her to spend the night in a detention center. In the midst of this, Maia, who was under the care of a Delta agent, mysteriously disappeared. Rodriguez recounts the devastating moment she was forced to leave for Punta Cana without her furry friend.

Delta, in response to Rodriguez’s requests for updates, expressed concern and commitment to the search. They collaborated with the Atlanta Department of Aviation and other entities. However, as the weeks passed, Rodriguez’s hope dwindled. Describing the ordeal as a “nightmare,” he sent his mother to help with the extensive search at the 4,000-acre airport.

The suspense culminated in a relaxing discovery near the northern cargo facilities. An apparently healthy but exhausted Maia was discovered, transported to a vet, and is now preparing for an encouraging meeting with Rodriguez.

This incident highlights the deep bond between pets and their owners and the lengths they will go to ensure their well-being. Delta Air Lines’ role in Maia’s escape remains under scrutiny, and CNN has reached out for more details.
