Police rescued a Peterborough man in his 70s on Sunday night (December 18) after he became lost while walking his dogs in a remote wooded area of Cavan.
After Peterborough police were made aware of the situation at around 6:15 p.m. on Sunday, several officers — including police constable Bob Cowie and police service dog Isaac — began searching for the man.
Around two hours later, the officers found the man and his dogs. The man was uninjured.
Police then used a remotely piloted aircraft system to help the group navigate safely out of the bush.
“With policing a rural area such as Cavan-Monaghan, tools such as our K9 unit and remotely piloted aircraft system are invaluable to help find people who have become lost or are missing,” says acting police chief Tim Farquharson.
“We are pleased this situation turned out positively.”
