The police dog advanced into the woods and along some trails to a point where trails intersected. The dog searched the area around the intersecting trails and detected the scent path of the subject. Cort took the deputies to a creek bed and began an air scent search for the individual.

After about one-half mile, Cort alerted on the scent and the individual was located on the bank of the creek and was found to be in good health.
