A police dog has been praised after she managed to find a member of the public who was suffering from a mental health crisis.
Police Dog ‘Thea’ and his handler had been tasked by Dyfed-Powys Police to try and find a member of the public who was going through a distressing mental health episode.
PD ‘Thea’ and her handler had been given information concerning the last known location of the patient, as well as a rough direction of travel.
It wasn’t long before PD ‘Thea’s’ nose managed to pick up the scent of the person who had gone missing.
PD ‘Thea’ and her handler found the vulnerable person standing next to the edge of a cliff – they had got there just in time.
Thanks to the excellent communication skills of Thea’s handler, the vulnerable person was talked back from the edge of the cliff and is now receiving the help and support they need.

Before you go...
We need your help. As former emergency services & armed forces personnel, we pride ourselves on bringing you important, fast-moving and breaking news stories which are free from the negative bias which is often directed at the emergency services by some sections of the mainstream media.
One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
And remember, if you have a service, product or job vacancy that you would like to promote to our large readership, then you can buy advertising space in our articles.
You can support emergency services news from as little as £1. It only takes a minute. Every contribution, however big or small, is vital for our future.
