Several reports confirm that the Malamutes, Cesar and Maya, are traveling with a young male between the age of 18-24 years old. His name is “Kyle,” and he was last seen wearing green pants with a “tail” attached. He has blonde hair that may have recently been shaved or may be covered by a hat with long tassels covering his ears.
