Zeus ran from the crash that occurred just after 11 a.m. and has not been seen since.

His owner reportedly suffered a broken jaw as a result of the crash and allegedly will not seek medical treatment until his dog is found, community members said.

Signs about Zeus being missing, as well as articles of clothing, have been placed all around the Oakwood, Far Hills and Oak Knoll areas where he was last seen.

Community members looking for the missing dog urge others not to chase Zeus if you locate him, but rather call the local police department.
