Authorities say Lake County Sheriff’s Canine Dax conducted a track and located two juveniles who went missing from a home in Crystal Lake.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office was requested to assist the Crystal Lake Police Department around 12:15 a.m. Sunday.
Lake County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Chief Christopher Covelli said a canine unit was dispatched to Mulberry Lane and Holly Drive in Crystal Lake for a search.
Two juveniles had been reported missing after they left a home on foot.
At least one of the juveniles was reported to be under the influence of alcohol, Covelli said.
Lake County Sheriff’s Canine Dax and handler Deputy John Forlenza responded.
Dax tracked for approximately a half-mile and located both of the juveniles at approximately 1:30 a.m.
The juveniles were hiding in a yard in the 1300 block of Mulberry Lane in Crystal Lake.
A female juvenile was treated by paramedics due to her level of intoxication, Covelli said.
The sheriff’s office said both juveniles were returned to the safety of their families.
