Quesnel family searching for answers after stolen dogs found dead

There are still no answers in the mysterious and disturbing deaths of two dogs found along a highway near Quesnel last week. 

Nicole Tremblay knew something was wrong when she came home on Friday and didn't hear any barking. She soon discovered all four of her dogs were missing from their kennels. 

Not long after that, one of the dogs, a boxer, was spotted by a driver wandering along the Nazko highway more than 50 kilometers away from Tremblay's home. 

Tracks in the snow lead to the bodies of two of the other dogs, both boxers. 

There was no obvious sign of trauma, but RCMP believe they were killed on purpose. 

Tremblay says a vet examined one of the dogs and found it may have been poisoned with carbon monoxide. 

"There's no reason why. I just don't understand why anyone would do this. Just, I'm a wreck over this. I'm devastated." 

Meanwhile Tremblay's fourth dog, a dachshund, is still missing. 

The family is offering a three thousand dollar reward for information.
