Two eight-year-old kids had gone missing while they were trying to find their way home after playing a chase game in the woods, as reported by WRIC.  It was getting late, and the light was fading.

While speaking to the agency, one of the children, Chloe Reese, said:

“So like we forgot which path we went down, so we're like going through different paths trying to find the way back to our house."

The darker it got, the more their parents got worried, so they decided to report to the local sheriff's office.

The sheriff office took their 4-year old dog, Bane, to search the house. As he was set free into the woods, super Bane tracked and located the kids within 15 minutes.

The children were then returned home safely, and K-9 Bane was ready to serve again!

The sheriff’s office said that, while maintaining the K-9 program is expensive, incidents like this are why the sheriff keeps the program going strong. The department took to Facebook to shower praise on the four-legged hero.

We’re so glad the two children were found and returned to their families safe and sound. We do hope they’re more careful in the future!
