BRONSON, Mich.– The search resumes on Tuesday for a 48-year-old Branch County man, who went missing after trying to find his dog.

Thomas Miller, of Bronson, was last seen around 9:00 p.m. Saturday night. Police say he went after his dog, Ziggy, after she escaped from the fenced-in yard around his house on N. Matteson Street.

His family has been sitting outside of his house as police search the area. His mom, Arlene Miller, says she stayed up until 4:30 a.m. Monday morning

“The waiting is killing me, it’s killing his son,” she said.  “We’re hanging in there and hoping and praying for the best,” she said.

Bronson Police and Michigan State Police have been searching the corn fields around his house and will continue searching again Tuesday monring with assitance from more departments.

“It’s scary and I just hope we get answers. That’s the only thing I can pray for, is that we get answers,” said Miller’s sister Arlana Connin.

Miller is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall, 180 lbs. with brown hair and brown eyes.  He has a full mustache and beard and was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black muscle shirt and tennis shirts. He was also wearing glasses.

His dog is described as a Chihuahua/Jack Russell terrier mix, white and brown in color and is about a year old.
