HELP.VERY SCARED, SKITTISH, RUNNING DOG LOST IN PROSPECT PARK SINCE THUR, 7/14am. NAME IS "MACHO"

PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN.

MACHO IS A 25 LBS VERY SCARED/SKITTISH/RUNNING SCRUFFY TERRIER MIX THAT CAME OUT OF HIS COLLAR VERY EARLY THURS AM (7/14) IN PROSPECT PARK, AND IS A BRAND NEW RESCUE DOGGIE WHO WAS JUST ADOPTED A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO, AND HE HAS BEEN SPOTTED RUNNING MANY MANY TIMES IN THE AREAS OF THE BANDSHELL, PICNIC HOUSE, LONG MEADOW & GAP EVER SINCE. HIS MOM OF ONLY TWO DAYS HAS BEEN IN THE PARK SEARCHING RELENTLESSLY IN HER HEAT AND EXHAUSTION TRYING TO CATCH HIM EVER SINCE (AS HAVE VARIOUS VOLUNTEERS), BUT HE BOLTS AWAY WHEN APPROACHED AS HE IS VERY VERY SCARED & SPOOKS EASILY. OBVIOUSLY HE IS IN A LOT OF DANGER RUNNING AT TOP SPEED FROM PLACE TO PLACE, ESPECIALLY IF HE BOLTS OUT OF THE PARK. AND THE HEAT AND DEHYDRATION IS VERY DANGEROUS AS WELL AFTER ALL THIS TIME.

PLEASE, PLEASE HELP FIND MACHO IF YOU CAN SEARCH THIS AREA OF THE PARK AND BRING HIM TO SAFETY. HE MAY BE HIDING UNDER BRUSH OR BUSHES TO KEEP COOLER AND FEEL SAFE. PLEASE DO NOT CHASE OR RUN IF SPOTTED!! DO NOT APPROACH FROM BEHIND. THIS WILL SPOOK HIM. GENTLE MOVEMENT ONLY...IF SPOTTED, GENTLY SIT ON GROUND CLOSE BY AND TRY TO COAX WITH FOOD (CHEESES OR MEATS MIGHT WORK) AND CALL HIS NAME "MACHO" IN HIGH PITCHED HAPPY VOICE. TRY TO GET HIM TO GENTLY COME TO YOU BY PLACING DOWN/OFFERING FOOD.   AND AGAIN HE IS NOT WEARING A COLLAR OR LEASH, SO IF YOU CAN GET HIM, DONT LET HIM GO BECAUSE HE WILL RUN LIKE HELL IF GIVEN THE CHANCE. HOLD HIM QUIETLY UNTIL HIS VERY DESPERATE, VERY DEVOTED NEW MOM, SHANNON CAN COME FOR HIM.
