Wolf Massey posted about her lost snake on Facebook, saying Abaddon has been lost since Sunday morning.

Massey asked anyone who finds the snake to not hurt it.

"She is my pet, and I love and care about her just as much as one may love and care about a dog or cat, albeit more. She means so immensely much to me," Massey posted.

Officials said that the animal is not aggressive and that animal control is working with the owner to track it down.
