    How sad
    I would put it in a bag & freeze it.
    Then call the local vets & let them know
    go on line to parrot 911 & post the info
    Local papers should have a free lost & found add area, post
    also call local shelters & animal control to see if they
    know who is looking. -they may not only want to know but
    also want the body. Some people will look for years and be
    heart broken at not knowing. Try to let them know & move on
    best of luck
