MARSHALL ó With the help of a heroic K-9, Harrison County deputies were able to find a missing autistic child quickly. Thatís according to KETK. At 2:30 Monday afternoon, authorities were notified of the missing child on Roosevelt Taylor Road. When they arrived, the mother told officials she had last seen her 14-year-old son in his bedroom around 8:00 that morning. Due to the close proximity of Interstate 20 and a heavily wooded area surrounding the house, deputies brought in Bruce, a specially trained K-9. After the dog got a scent from the boyís clothing, the child was found safe deep in a wooded area near the home. Sgt. Best, the deputy who helped find the child, has extensive training in tracking and utilizing his K-9 partnerís abilities for drug detection and tracking of human scents.
