Author Dennis Lehane is offering an unusual reward to the person who finds his family's beloved missing dog.

Lehane said he would name a character in his next book after whoever finds Tessa, who disappeared from the family's home in Massachusetts this week.

He said on his Facebook page that Tessa jumped a fence and, even though she had been micro-chipped, she was not wearing her tags.

Lehane has written Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone, Shutter Island and other books.
