VIDEO: Rookie Police K-9 Locates Missing New York Teen

A day after completing the Yonkers Police Department's K-9 Academy, Rookie, Ramapo (N.Y.) Police Department's newest service dog, made his first save, locating a missing New City teenager.

Jorge Hernandez-Rodriguez, 19, argued with a family member Thursday before disappearing about 11 a.m. into the woods near South Central Highway, Clarkstown police said.

Clarkstown police told The Journal News Rookie and Ramapo Police Officer Andres Sanchez, the dog's handler, were the first to locate the teen after tracking him for about a half-mile.

"Rookie is fresh out of school and we had our first successful track," Sanchez said hours after the save. "It was awesome."

On Wednesday, Rookie was one of six dogs to celebrate the completion of a 17-week course with the Yonkers Police Department, which trains police dogs from across the region.
