A missing 100-year-old pet tortoise was found six miles from home

A pet tortoise that had been missing for two weeks was reunited with its owner on Friday in California. Nancy Knauss has had her tortoise Touche since she was 5-years-old but had left her gate open and the 100-year-old tortoise escaped.

We posted on a lot of sites and we put fliers in people's mailboxes saying we had lost a tortoise and to please keep your eyes open
Nancy Knauss- Tortoise Owner

Touche covered a distance of more than 11 football fields a day, traveling over 6.5 miles from her home in northeast Fresno to Gettysburg and Highway 41 in only 10 days. A neighbor spotted the tortoise climbing onto a domed mount over a neighbor's water pipe.

The neighbor, Steven George says he discovered the tortoise was missing on social media and returned Touche to the owner. Knauss says she's so grateful for everyone who helped look for her pet tortoise.
