RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — With the help of Wake County’s K-9 Rosie a man was located down in a 6-foot ravine and rescued early Monday morning.
Wake County deputies responded to a “check on welfare” call shortly before 2:30 a.m., after a mentally ill man fled his home near the 1600 block of Briarwood Place in Raleigh.
With concern for the temperatures reaching the freezing mark, deputies decided to track the victim with the assistance of the office’s K9 “Rosie,” which picked up a track along several streets ended at a home on Raven Ridge Road, deputies say.
With the assistance of “Rosie,” deputies began to search a lightly wooded area behind the home. It was at that time “Rosie” tracked to a 6-foot ravine, locating the subject.
