“I have 13+ witnesses who saw this ‘homeless’ guy with the black French Bulldog that’s likely Melo in Santa Monica. This guy has been seen near the pier 5 different times by 7 witnesses. Please share and help me locate this guy,” reads the post from owner Yuki.

The post goes onto describe the man as possibly named Jay or Jefferey, between. 5’8-5’10, “big/chubby”, tanned, Caucasian or possibly Hispanic, some facial hair, likely short hair or bald wearing a dirty black top, pants and a hat.
