Default Help for Feral-ish dog

Last week (Monday I think) a local foster parent had their foster dog slip out of her no slip collar and get loose in my city. Her foster parents only had her for a week, and she's practically semi-feral. She doesn't want anything to do with being caught, she keeps a good distance from people. Not even her foster parents can get close.

Here's the good thing, though, we live on an island (a big one, the size of a normal township) and its unlikely that she can leave it. She would either have to cross one of the two bridges, or swim (please don't do that!). So she has been spotted all over the island, from tip to tip. She is not settling down in one area, it seems. We unfortunately have lots of coyotes here, and she's only a beagle mix, so that's a big concern.

I was helping follow the dog the first day, and I want to help in any way possible. I was thinking it would be best to use food to get the dog going into a backyard or fenced area, then close it , but she won't stick around the same area long enough. Any ideas???
