CONYERS, GA - A police K9's keen sense of smell leads authorities to a missing elderly woman.
The 89-year-old went missing Monday night just before midnight from Rockdale Healthcare located at 1510 Renaissance Drive.
Police and Rockdale County Sheriff's Deputies searched the area with no success.
Around 2 a.m., K9 Eddie and Officer Myra Scruggs arrived on scene. Without any information on where the missing woman exited the facility or what direction she may have gone, K9 Eddie started his track cold. Immediately picking up on a track, he led his handler directly to two other Conyers officers engaged in the search. Not the intended target, Officer Scruggs had Eddie start over back at the facility. Searching around the property, Eddie stopped abruptly and turned his head to listen before dragging his handler into the edge of the woods where Scruggs then heard a quiet moaning.
