The pet of slain Wayne State University Police officer Collin Rose is missing, according to the nonprofit that works to keep his memory alive.

"Collin and Nikki's beloved dog Marsha escaped yesterday," The Officer Collin Rose Memorial Foundation said in a post on its Facebook page Tuesday. "She is still missing."

The group said the dog was last near Lutheran High School Northwest in Rochester Hills around 9:30 p.m.

Marsha is a 5-year-old dog that weighs about 55 pounds. She doesn't have a collar but has a shaved neck because of previous bite wounds. She is also very skittish and will run if approached, the post said.

"Please help find her," it said. "If found please call Oakland County Sheriff's Office at 248-858-4951."

Rose, a five-year member of the university's police department and police dog handler, was shot in the head Nov. 22, 2016, after stopping to investigate a man riding a bike on Lincoln near Selden Street just off the Wayne State campus.

Rose died the next day and became the first officer in the school’s history to be killed on duty. He was 29.

The man accused of killing Rose, Raymond Durham, 61, has been charged with first-degree murder as well as murder of a peace officer, and possession of a firearm by a felon.
