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

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

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

Lehane wrote "Mystic River," ''Gone Baby Gone," ''Shutter Island" and other books.
