A dog went missing for four days at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, in what sounds like a potential reboot of the 2006 film Unaccompanied Minors where children ran wild in a snowbound airport.

The dog, a 22-month-old American Staffordshire Terrier named Gale, was on her way home to Amsterdam after competing in a dog show in Louisville, Kentucky, when she escaped from her crate. According to CNN, the pup’s crate was being held in the airfield as workers were getting ready to load her on to the cargo area of a KLM flight bound for Amsterdam. When their backs were turned, she somehow reenacted a Harry Houdini routine and escaped. Her human companions got the news that the dog was missing just as they were preparing to board the plane themselves. They understandably “freaked out” over the fact that their beloved, prize pup was running loose on the busy airport’s tarmac.
