SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The Marion County, Oregon, sheriff’s office isn’t the first place someone typically calls over a lost pet. But since this case involves a 10-foot-long red tail boa constrictor missing for four days in a Salem neighborhood where the homes are close together, deputies responded quickly and searched for the reptile.

Sgt. Chris Baldridge said Thursday the owners of the 23-year-old female snake named “Nomad,” say she may have slithered out a second-story window.

The deputies’ search turned up no signs of the snake so they’re contacting nearby residents and suggesting they keep a close eye on pets and small children.

Baldridge says the snake is green and tan and, despite its name, doesn’t have a red tail.
