None of the above. I vote for: http://woodinville.patch.com/articles/woodinville-area-family-searching-for-dog-missing-since-saturday. It was hyper-local (Patch's raison d'être), required electronic dissemination (a weekly newspaper is too slow), wouldn't get covered by broader news organizations, isn't divisive or controversial, and it had a happy ending. This is what I love to see on Patch!
