R&B singer Ray J is frantically searching for his beloved dog after the pooch went missing from his California home on Tuesday night (01Apr14).

Maltese puppy Boogotti is believed to have wandered out of the One Wish star's house in a gated community in the San Fernando Valley and the disappearance has left Ray J heartbroken, according to Tmz.com.

His manager, David Weintraub, tells the website Brandy's younger brother spent hours trying to track down the pet in the rain, to no avail, and he is now looking to hire professionals to find his furry friend.
