STURBRIDGE, MASS. (WHDH) -
A K9 dog is being hailed a hero after it sniffed out the location of a missing woman with Dementia in Sturbridge. Troopers responding to a report of a missing woman in her late 50’s met with the woman’s husband who provided K9 officer Cairo with some bedding so he could begin tracking her scent, according to a release issued by Massachusetts State Police. Cairo began a track from the backyard of the residence that led to a path. A pick up in the wind caused a momentary distraction but the dog was able to continue searching the thick brush.Eventually, officers heard a faint voice yelling for help and they were able to safely locate the missing woman.
She was returned to her family home.
