These are places where Dingo isn’t:
- At his old studio.
- At the home of Carter, Eve’s cousin and Dingo’s former girlfriend.
- At the homes of any of the twelve others of his former girlfriends we were able to contact.
- Anywhere in our old neighborhood—if Dingo were there, everyone would know about it.
- Probably not in our region; otherwise he might have heard that Levi was running for Mayor, and would have contacted him. And he surely would have tried to find me or Eve—there’s no reason we can think of why he wouldn’t.
All in all, we’ve made a reasonable stab at finding our old friend. All we have ahead of us now as places to look is just the whole rest of America.
