Ramapo police K-9 tracks and finds missing woman on first assignment
A Ramapo police dog is being hailed for finding a woman who ran away from a neighborhood group facility.
Ramapo Officer McRory says K-9 Ryder picked up an odor and tracked it down the street and into the woods where the team located the person hiding behind a tree.
The woman was safely accompanied back to the residence and evaluated by the Spring Hill Community Ambulance Corps.
This was Ryder and Officer McRory's first track after completing the Orange County Sheriff's K-9 Patrol School this past June. They will be heading back to school in September to become certified in explosives.
Town of Ramapo Police has three active patrol K-9 teams specializing in both narcotics and explosives.
