Missing toddler found asleep in woods with one family dog ‘as a pillow’ while the other ‘kept her safe’ | US News
A missing two-year-old girl who got lost in the woods near her home was found asleep on one of her two family dogs like a furry pillow – while the other “kept her safe”.
Her disappearance sparked a major hunt, with drones and police dogs joining police and local residents to search the remote wooded area of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, in the US.
She had walked away from her house with two family dogs before being found with both of them, state police said.
“She laid down and used one of the dogs as a pillow, and the other dog laid right next to her and kept her safe,” lieutenant Mark Giannunzio said.
“It’s a really remarkable story.”
Police were called at around 8pm on Wednesday. A local who had joined the search found the girl around midnight, about three miles from her home.
Mr Giannunzio said the girl was checked by medical staff and appeared to be in good health.
