Fremont County Sheriff’s Office released a statement on Sunday saying that they used a drone to find Farrah, a Golden Retriever that had been missing for more than three months.
The dog belongs to Taylor Salazar who told police that the dog had been riding in the car with her dad when he had a seizure and crashed. The dog ended up escaping and running away from the crash site and was believed to still be alive, but just lost on her own.
Locals in the area told Taylor that they had seen the dog, but every time one of them tried to get close enough to wrangle her, the dog would run away.
“And if they got too close she’d run away and she knew where to go,” Taylor told NBC. “She was hiding.”
Some people showed Taylor proof that the Golden Retriever was still alive via security camera footage taken from the local’s property showing the dog drinking water from a cow trough.
That’s when a dispatcher from the sheriff’s office had the bright idea to go on a training mission with their high-tech infrared drone and attempt to find the missing dog.
They had an idea of where she would be and started looking in an area where she was reportedly last seen. Finally, she was located!
