05/08/2016 Find

During a SARDA National training weekend, a search was started for a missing 16 YO male. The eastern bank of the River Dart was searched, and Search Dog Toohey indicated at an area on the bank and waded into the water.

The body of the missing person was retrieved by police divers the next day.

We received a note from Devon and Cornwall Police:

The indication given by your dog was invaluable because it refocused the search back onto the area where he went in.
