A pet cat that escaped while passing through Boston Logan airport, sparking a search involving specialist pet trackers and cameras, has been found after 19 days on the run.
On Wednesday, Boston Logan International Airport tweeted that the cat, named Rowdy, had been found and passed to local animal protection services to await being reunited with her family.
The four-year-old black feline had been missing since June 24, after chasing birds while being unloaded from a Lufthansa flight, per the AP press and multiple publications. She'd travelled in cargo in a pet carrier, per CNBC's 10 Boston.
Rowdy was flown in from Frankfurt, with her owners Patty and Rich Sahli, who were relocating back to the US after spending 15 years in Germany, where Rich was part of the US military, per AP.
Airport staff installed wildlife cameras and safe-release traps to track Rowdy's movements after she was spotted roaming around Logan's Terminal E. Lufthansa even hired animal trackers to aid the search, per the industry publication Simple Flying.
On Wednesday, Rowdy entered a cage and was caught, Patty Sahli told Boston's WCVB5 channel.
"Whether out of fatigue or hunger we'll never know, but this morning she finally let herself be caught," a spokesperson for Massport, which runs Boston Logan International, told the Associated Press.

Sahli told CNBC's Boston 10 program that Lufthansa agreed to fly her from Florida to Boston on Friday evening, so she can collect Rowdy on Saturday.
Boston Logan Airport, Lufthansa, and Sahli did not immediately reply to Insider's approach for comment, which was made outside of regular business hours.
