MIAMI (CBSMiami) – New details Thursday on the missing and now found pet pot belly pig, Lucy.

After being missing for a couple of days, Lucy is now back with her owners, and there has been a lot of belly rubbing going on since the 60lb pot belly pig was reunited with them.

Lucy's owners Bianca Sierra and Eduardo Guzman say she went missing Monday morning.

The couple immediately contacted the police, the media and even posted flyers in hopes of finding her.  Finally they did.

Sierra says after getting one call that did not pan out, "I got another call from a woman saying her husband found a pig on the same street I live on, and that they found her at [a parking lot at] Home Depot and they had her because they didn't want her to get run over."

Sierra wanted to rush over to pick Lucy up, but couldn't because she was at work.  So, she sent her boyfriend, a.k.a. Lucy's dad, instead.

"I was just relieved that someone really found her and that the power of the media really works and that somebody was watching and somebody called," said Sierra.

After being heartbroken for days, Sierra's heart is now full and filled with gratitude for everyone who kept a watchful eye out for her Lucy.

"I just want to say thank you so much!"

Sierra's birthday is Saturday, and she says Lucy's return is the best present she could've received.
