By kcora on

A Maywood officer and his K-9 are being credited for finding a missing juvenile.

According to police, on August 8th, at approximately 9:15, Maywood PD K-9 was dispatched to assist another law enforcement agency with locating a missing endangered juvenile who had not been missing for approximately 10 hours.

Bloodhound Zoey arrived at the residence at which time she was scented and worked the trail for approximately 1/4 mile.

Bloodhound Zoey was loaded into the patrol car and brought to the area were the juvenile was last spotted. She was again scented and worked a trail on a walking path to a dock.

Police said Bloodhound Zoey went onto the dock and led to a parked covered boat, where she gave an "identification."

The juvenile was located under the boat cover, unharmed.

She was ultimately reunited with family.
