This morning about 8:06 am, Senior Corporal Susan Millard and her partner K9 Yoll were dispatched to a critical missing call of a 12 year old girl, who was possibly suicidal. The child had climbed out her bedroom window this morning, leaving a note threatening suicide.
Senior Corporal Millard obtained one of the child’s socks and allowed K9 Yoll to check it, then started him by the bedroom window at about 8:45am. Yoll was able to track the child’s scent from the house, through the neighborhood, into the brush by the creek, out to Kiest Blvd; back into the neighborhood, and over to a church at 2700 W. Kiest Blvd.
At about 10:10 am, Senior Corporal Millard and K9 Yoll went in and out of the church buildings, and onto a parking lot when Senior Corporal Millard spotted the child who had walked into some brush at the edge of the parking lot. She called out to the child and the child stopped walking so that patrol officers were able to take custody of her.
A great job was done by K9 Yoll and his partner Senior Corporal Millard! K9 Yoll was awarded a Pupachino for his hard work…Way to go!
