Wood County Sheriff Deputy points out the area of search efforts

WOOD COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A central Wisconsin K-9 officer missing for two nights was found alive this morning.

Toro, the Wood County Sheriff’s Department’s drug-sniffing German shepherd, was discovered during an extensive search.

Other details were not immediately available.

Toro was loaned to the State Patrol on Sunday night to sniff out a suspect’s car for possible illegal drugs – and he ran off into a wooded area southwest of Plover in Portage County.

Rescuers used helicopters and snowmobiles to search the area yesterday.

Officials said Toro is a highly-trained law enforcement that’s been part of the Wood County sheriff’s force for just over two years.
