"Obi walked up to this family," part of the post from Katrina Karr read. 

Obi went missing in October, after Thomas Rodriguez and his girlfriend Andrea Mawby were involved in a deadly head-on crash in northern Arizona while they were headed to the Grand Canyon.

"On the first day of the search for Obi we had eyes on him but he ran and ran very fast," the Facebook post from Saturday said. 

"We had sightings coming in but they were mostly of local dogs and the local dogs kept coming to our traps that we had out for Obi. We set feeding stations that also fed the local dogs. We kept trying and kept getting the local dogs," the post continued. 

"When we did get confirmed sightings we knew it was him because Obi is very unique in his body type long legs, long neck and shiney black!! Handsome guy!!"

There were periodic sightings of Obi, from a week and a half ago to Friday, the post read, "but again Obi ran then nothing no confirm sightings came until yesterday when a paramedic called us and told us he has eyes on Obi but can't catch him again."

An older gentleman called the people behind the Facebook group on Saturday night and said he had Obi. 

"Obi's family is truly amazing," part of the Facebook post read. 

"They got the word out and it had thousands upon thousands shared where we were meeting tourist out there that actually stopped in the area to look for him."
