Officers Make Correct Decision To Let Dog Take Over Search For Missing Hunter

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes they even walk on four legs. A police dog in Marysville, Michigan named Heiko helped find a man who got lost while hunting.

Around 9:30pm on Saturday, Nov. 30, Marysville Police received a call saying that a hunter had been lost.

According to the Times Herald, a man called the police to report that his friend was lost in the Port Huron State Game Area.

“He had been in the woods a long time from our understanding. I wasn’t too hopeful on finding an actual track. But we knew we had some bad weather coming in and it was going to get rather cool overnight so we wanted to try and find him as quickly as we could,” Officer Justin Reeves with Marysville Police told 7 Action News.

Reeves simply let Heiko lead the way during the search, and that tactic paid off.

Reeves and the Marysville Police set out along with the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office and the Clyde Township Fire Department at 9:45pm on Saturday. And Heiko, who’s a 4-year-old German Shepherd, led the whole team.

“Heiko didn’t want to relax, he didn’t want to take a break, he didn’t want to play. He wanted to keep going,” Reeves said.

All of Heiko’s hard work paid off. He led the team to find the hunter within an hour.

This is the second time that Heiko has located a missing hunter. As the first and only K-9 officer on the Marysville Police force, Heiko is definitely making his mark as a true hero.

Reeves said, “When these types of situations arise it’s nice to have another set of tools out there that can do things that we can’t.”
