A bloodhound with the Maywood Police Department K-9 Unit was requested to assist other area police agencies in the search for a missing child who hadn't been seen in more than 10 hours in near-freezing temperatures.
The agency posted on Facebook, "Maywood PD K-9 Officer Chris Nichols along with 3-year-old Bloodhound 'Remi' responded to assist. The team received information on the last known location the juvenile was seen."
There, K-9 Remi was given a jacket the juvenile had worn earlier in the day to acquire a scent. K-9 Remi led officers through several city and residential blocks at which time she entered a thick brush area, where the juvenile was subsequently located, lying concealed and suffering from the weather's elements.
The post continued, "The juvenile was cared for and reunited with family."
