Show pig goes missing days before opening of South Texas State Fair

Posted: Updated:

Time is running out as a Lumberton Senior and her friends continue searching for her missing show pig. 

Jessica Burke says her pig Loretta was last seen Tuesday morning before school. When she returned to Loretta after school the animal was gone from its pen. 

She along with friends searched the surrounding area Tuesday and Burke even took off from school Wednesday to continue the search. 

This year was burkes first and last chance to show a pig at the South Texas State Fair because she is a high school senior. 

Burke says the pig weighs around 220 pounds but may have lost weight if she hasn't been fed. 
If Loretta is spotted Burke says you can keep her attention using vanilla wafers, her favorite treat.
