It would seem that a fellow Furry has gone missing…and a police report has been filed.

As the image states above, Paul Christopher Beyer (Furry name: Skitch) went missing in California before he was supposed to attend BLFC-several friends have confirmed they didn’t see him at BLFC, so his disappearance before the con seems more likely.

There have been some saying they might have seen him in a group photo or two (meaning he made it to the convention) but this has not yet been confirmed.

We ask that anyone that attended BLFC check their photos to see if he might have been there…and:

Anyone with information should contact authorities immediately!

I know that it is the friend that is looking for him, but, this is not always safe. We don’t know who this friend is, nor if they have some alternate intentions. We don’t want to assume but, there have been cases in the past where abusive exes or stalkers have used a missing person poster in order to find someone that was avoiding them.
So, for the safety of the missing person, please notify the police if you know his whereabouts or have any clues on where he might be.

We don’t know his reasons for going under the radar…and truthfully, it’s not really our business. But, as a person…I know that I would want him to be safe and sound.

As far as we know, this person is either not very close to and/or doesn’t really have any family that would know their whereabouts and/or would be able to give us any information. Everything we know will be posted in the updates.
Their roommate is the only other person actively searching and looking for leads at the moment and most info is coming from them.

We can only hope that Skitch makes it back home safely….

This blog will be updated as I receive more information!


  • [Update #1]: He was last seen in a black Honda Civic. 90’s model. The police have his plates. Still nothing.
  • [Update #2]: His roommate called his manager, said he hasn’t shown up in 3 weeks and thought he quit.
  • [Update #3]: Rumors have been floating around that this fur was found. The rumors are not true. Authorities have reached out to his Father, but the Father doesn’t know where he is either. Please remember to contact the authorities if you know anything….NOT the roommate.
  • [Update #4]: The missing fur was found as confirmed by the roommate via a picture. Dogpatch Press also confirmed. No, we were not given a reason for the disappearance but we can at least know that this fur is safe. Please respect his privacy during this time.

#bringemmaback2018 – Incident at BLFC

32294370_162558711261095_6981190098054283264_n

Biggest-Little-Furcon, a furry convention taking place in Nevada for well over 5 years now. It sported over 3,500 attendees last year and raised $36,000 for charity. A lot of my favorite suiters attend this con yearly, and I will admit that I have never heard anything bad about it.

But this year the convention has taken the Furry Fandom by storm due to a bullying incident surrounding a girl named Emma.

Emma was attending the con and gathering around for the furuit photo shoot that takes place before/after every fursuit parade. That’s when she was approached by two mice that started to bully her about her fursuit. The young woman was so embarrassed that she ran out without her Father saying that she hated being a Furry and that she did not want to be in the fandom anymore. Here is the story as told by a witness:

Now, I’m not one to go around spreading unnecessary Furry drama. Bad things happen in the fandom all the time…BUT, bullying is NEVER okay. The Furry fandom is a very accepting place. We often welcome in everyone and do not judge backgrounds, illnesses, lifestyles, etc. But if there is one thing the Furry fandom is NOT tolerant of…it’s bullies.

This little girl loves furries and just wanted to be part of the con in her fursuit. It does not matter that she was wearing a maskimal…it should not matter that she didnt have full sleeves or paws…or anything like that.
As a fandom, we have to remember that this is a place in which we show our creativity! In this fandom, some people buy their suits, and some people make them. Some people are full-suiters, and some only wear partials. There are those still trying to afford a whole suit, so maybe they are just wearing a head.

Some people at conventions dress in tails and ears, and some people just wear their regular clothes. It’s the fact that we can all be varied and yet come together to celebrate the same things that make us the amazing fandom that we are!!!

But hey, at least this story has a happy ending!

After Emma was bullied and ran out of the con, the Father and witnesses banded together to get her back at BLFC. People started rallying being hashtags such as #emmaisawesome & #bringemmaback2018 in order to show their support on multimedia platforms.

Emma’s instagram was blown up with nothing but kind words from those that wanted her to still have the best Furry convention of her life, and art thread-after-art thread have been popping up in Furry groups across facebook gathering art for Emma of her cute tiger sona.

As for the mice, at least one of them has been pointed out by Emma (to the con staff which is proper procedure) and their badge has been taken from them. Their names have not been made public for good reason, and for their sake…I really hope it stays that way. Hopefully this will teach them a lesson about making fun of little girls.

Let this be a lesson to anyone that thinks making fun of someone is okay that there are consequences to your actions! Keep your negative thoughts to yourself. No one has any more entitlement to be in this fandom than the other person. Material possessions do NOT make you any more of a Furry than anyone else. Now Emma is getting the love and support she deserves from this amazing fandom, and the bullies will be sitting at home missing the rest of an amazing convention.

But, if you would also like to show Emma some love and support, you can find her official Twitter handle:
