85-year-old Loreta Dabajo went missing from her son's home where she lives on a Wednesday morning in New Jersey.
After the family looked around for a while, they called police about an hour later. Police came and everyone was searching, but it was a K9 officer with the Essex County Sheriff's Department that followed Loreta's scent from pillows and found her. She was only a few houses away in a wooded area nearby.
Loreta came away relatively unharmed from the whole incident, though she doesn't remember anything that happened.
Loreta's son Christopher Dabajo is extremely thankful for everyone helped, but the K9 officer in particular saying, "That dog is like a hero for us."
