Sturridge sempat menawarkan hadiah sebesar £ 30.000 untuk mengembalikan anjing Pomeraniannya itu, yang hilang dicuri selama pembobolan di rumahnya di Los Angeles.
Video dan gambar-gambar anjing itu di-tweet pada hari Rabu, dan Lucci sekarang telah dikembalikan ke tangan Sturridge.
"Aku tidak percaya," katanya dalam pesan video di Instagram.
"Saya hanya ingin mengucapkan terima kasih banyak kepada semua orang di media sosial yang mendukung kami dan meningkatkan kesadaran. Saya sangat berterima kasih."

HES HOME!! Lucci was found and returned in the early hours of Wednesday morning. Due to the circumstances, we neglected to post immediately that we had him back until we had permanently left the address we were staying at, seeing as how it was public and the middle of the night. To protect Luccis safety, us and our family staying with us. It has been an EMOTIONAL 36 hours to say the least. First and foremost we would like to thank ALL OF YOU!! The outpour of love, well wishes and positivity for Lucci’s return was more then we had ever imagined. All of your shares, likes and comments over all social media platforms helped to get the word out and bring him back. From the bottom of our heart, we can’t thank you all enough. All of our friends and family, all of Daniels fans and even the completely random strangers who were moved by what had happened to Lucci. We’d also like to thank all the news stations that ran the story throughout the day while he was missing. By making it so high profile, the thieves had no choice but to let him go. And to Laurie, Phil, Aida, Sohum and the rest of the surrounding neighbors, thank you for working with us, searching all your cameras and giving us any bit of information you could was truly appreciated. Lucci is in good spirits and we are so INCREDIBLY HAPPY and BLESSED to have our baby boy BACK!! Thank you, thank you thank you.
