Missing child recovered by new K-9 pup
WASHINGTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A child has been reunited with his family after deputies say he was found by a new K-9.
On Tuesday morning, a call was made to 911 about a missing juvenile. Washington County Sheriff’s Office says a father and son were walking the trails at Dogwood Acres when the father noticed the 9-year-old had wandered off.
Officials arrived on scene and immediately enlisted the newest addition to the sheriff’s office, K-9 Hannibal.
WCSO says Hannibal was trained in narcotics, tracking and apprehension and was able to help find the young boy.
This is 2-year-old K-9 Hannibal’s first find since joining the sheriff’s office in March from Houston, Texas.
