The Lake County Sheriff’s Office said that Canine Danno tracked down a missing child who was found several blocks from her home hiding in a wooded area near Waukegan.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office was called around 11 p.m. Sunday to the 35600 block of Green Place in unincorporated Waukegan.
Deputies learned a juvenile ran away on foot after an argument with her parents.
The sheriff’s office said the child’s parents were very concerned about their daughter’s well-being.
Canine Danno and his handler Deputy Andrew Martini were called to help in the search.
Danno tracked the girl for several blocks and found her hiding in a forested area.
The girl was safely returned home to her family, the sheriff’s office said.
“Good boy, Danno!” the sheriff’s office said in a post on social media.
Last month, Danno tracked down a suspect who was hiding in a marsh area after he allegedly tried breaking into a woman’s home near Gurnee.
The sheriff’s office responded early in the morning on May 27 to the 36100 block of North Grand Oaks Circle in unincorporated Gurnee.
A man was reported to be trying to break into his former girlfriend’s residence.
The suspect, Alexander L. Enis, 31, of Lake Villa, had fled the scene on foot when deputies arrived.
Danno was called to the scene to assist with the search and started a track. He soon located Enis’ flip flips.
The canine was able to track for another half-mile before locating Enis hiding in a marsh area.
Enis surrendered when he was informed that Danno would be released, the sheriff’s office said.
