David Draiman and his family experienced an awful scare when their ten-week-old Golden Retriever puppy, Charlotte, suddenly went missing from their Miami home a few days ago.

Luckily, this is a good news update, as the Disturbed vocalist took to social media this morning (3 October) to reveal that Charlotte was home.

“Found her!!! THANK GOD!!!” Draiman wrote on Twitter and Instagram, sharing a new photo of Charlotte in his arms and two pictures of her enjoying herself beside her food and water bowls. It’s the kind of update that we love to see.

Yesterday, Kill Your Stereo reported on Draiman’s recent posts alleging that Charlotte was stolen while she was playing in the family’s yard. He also offered a reward for anyone who helped find the puppy.

“It is with an incredibly heavy heart that I have to announce that our dear puppy, Charlotte has been missing since the morning before last. We think she was taken by someone/something when she was playing out in the yard,” Draiman recently wrote on Instagram.

“Reward for [anyone] with any information on her whereabouts that leads to finding her. 10 week old Golden Retriever puppy, Charlotte. Taken from the Coral Gables area of Miami”.

On 8 September, Draiman got down with the cuteness and shared the first puppy photos of himself and Charlotte.

In late May, Draiman revealed that he was awaiting biopsy results for a tumour removed from the radius in his right arm.

“It had been keeping me up nights. Should have biopsy results tomorrow. Thoughts, prayers, positive energy all welcome,” he wrote.

“It’s BENIGN!!!!” Draiman tweeted the following morning (1 June). 

In November, Disturbed released their eighth album, Divisive, which debuted in the Top Five on the ARIA Albums Chart. The album included the AI-generated music video for the single Bad Man and the additional singles Hey You, Unstoppable, and the title track.
