The digital billboard will go up Monday for Geordie, an elderly white Chihuahua who is also deaf. On September 14, Geordie escaped from a family member's home in the Riverside community in North East Raleigh.

His owner, Karen Calcano evacuated from Fort Lauderdale, FL before Hurricane Irma hit to stay with family in Raleigh.

Since Geordie's disappearance, Calcano has also hired an expert dog tracker and raised the finder's reward from $1,000 to $3,500.

The digital billboards can be seen off of US 1 and other highway locations in Raleigh.

Calcano urges anyone who may have found him, or even just spotted him, to give her a call - no questions asked.
