“Thanks to excellent work between teams, the woman’s car was quickly found on a mountain road. Although this gave officers a location to search from, there was still a vast area to cover given the amount of time she had been missing.”
That’s when Max’s tracking skills came to the rescue. Guided by Max and after 90 minutes of searching, Lloyd spotted the missing woman waving for help on the side of the mountain near a steep ravine, Rees-Jones said.
The two were found safe, but cold, and are believed to have been in the area for a long time.
This was also Lloyd’s first shift with Max since joining the Dyfed-Powys Police dog section in February. Max, a general purpose dog, will be used by the force to track and locate people, find abandoned property, and locate suspects.
