Hilton also hired a firm operating heat-seeking drones and an army of pet detectives, psychics, and professional dog trackers around her Mulholland Estates mansion.
But the source told the press: ‘From the beginning the fear has always been that, because of the terrain, Diamond Baby may have fallen victim to wild coyotes. There has been a record heatwave in LA and coyotes are coming into residential neighbourhoods looking for food and water. They are starving.’

‘She’s heartbroken but will never give up on Diamond Baby,’ a close family friend said.
