Updated Thursday, Oct. 18

Unfortunately, the search for a Stratford family's missing Yorkshire terrier "Noah" has a sad ending.

About a week after Noah went missing on Oct. 10, he was struck and killed by a motorist in Bridgeport, according to a post on the Stratford Dog Park's Facebook page.

"Sad news to report tonight," the Wednesday night post read. "Noah was hit by a car in Bridgeport and didn't survive. Thank you for helping us try to find him. The family really appreciates your support."

The creators of the Facebook page say they are neighbors with Noah's owners. If you would like to leave a message for the owners, please do so below or on the dog park's Facebook page.

This little dog belongs to three of the most adorable little girls you'll ever see. Please everyone spread the word.

tell the owner to try find toto.com. This is a service that will call neighbors to let them know that the dog is missing. There is a fee which depends on the number of neighbors called. It was instrumental in finding a lost greyhound that had been on the move for 21 days.

Here's a post Stratford Dog Park just left on its Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/StratfordCTdogpark?fref=ts) The friends of the dog park are asking everyone to share Noah's photo again. With almost no sightings coming in we think he might have been picked up. If that's the case, we just hope they make the right decision in the end and bring him home.

That's very sad, poor dog, and poor heartbroken family... I was hoping he'd show up.
