(Newser) – Jessica Simpson's beloved Maltipoo Daisy has been snatched by a coyote near her Los Angeles home and hasn't been seen since, reports the New York Daily News. "My heart is broken because a coyote took my precious Daisy right in front of our eyes," tweeted Simpson. "We are searching. Hoping. Please help!" A neighbor reported hearing Simpson screaming when the little dog was grabbed.

Daisy, 5, was a gift from ex-hubby Nick Lachey, and the singer carried her everywhere. "Unfortunately, if she saw the coyote take Daisy, the chances of it surviving are very slim. She's probably not alive anymore," celebrity dog trainer Jennifer McCarthy told Us Weekly.
