Horse missing for two days turns up on Virginia highway

Virginia State Police said a horse missing from a farm for two days was returned home after being found blocking traffic on a highway.

The VSP said the female horse, named Mia, had been missing from her Louisa County home for two days when troopers were summoned to Interstate 64 in Albemarle County on a report of a horse in the roadway.

The horse was identified as the missing Mia and her owners were summoned to the scene.

Rachel Jones, a member of the Louisa County Board of Supervisors, said troopers and Virginia Department of Transportation personnel controlled traffic while Mia’s owners walked the horse off the highway and into a waiting trailer.
