BOSTON -- Almost a week after Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman's dog ran away during a fireworks show, she is celebrating his return.

"Heroes," Raisman tweeted Friday night in all capital letters. "Mylo is safe. I have him."

Earlier in the week, Raisman asked for the Boston community to help find her dog.

"My dog Mylo was terrified of fireworks and ran off," she tweeted on July 3. "He has a tag on and a leash. Please let me know if you see him."

By Friday, Raisman said her dog has possibly been spotted in several areas within Boston, but with no videos or pictures, it's hard to tell if it's actually her dog, she informed her of more than one million followers on Twitter.

Raisman tweeted on Tuesday that she was offering a reward for Mylo’s return.

"Appreciate your kindness and support," the three-time gold medalist said on Twitter. "I’ve seen so many people helping me look for Mylo and I can’t even begin to say how thankful I am."

In her tweet Friday evening, she said, "thank you Carla, Gayle & her sweet dog," but did not explain more about where Mylo was found or how he was returned.
