A general-purpose police dog has been praised after she tracked and located a high-risk missing person who had self-harmed with a knife and had been in the River Severn.
Response team officers had been alerted to the missing person and were trying hard to locate them as quickly as possible.
Police Dog ‘Bella’ and her handler, from West Mercia Police Dogs, were drafted in to help search for the individual who was going through a mental health crisis.
After a successful track, PD ‘Bella’ managed to find the vulnerable missing person without further incident.
The missing was safely detained and is now receiving the relevant help.
