A man who had been reported missing from Luton was found safe in Hertfordshire with help from a handler and dog from the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire (BCH) Dog Unit.

Police were called to Dyke Lane, Weathampstead, shortly after 1am on Friday, May 8, after concerns were raised about the man.

A number of officers were sent to the area to help with the search, including a police helicopter and a police dog unit.

A vehicle, that the police believed the missing man had been using, was found nearby and police dog Tai was deployed.

After just under a mile of tracking across fields, Tai located the missing man.

Sergeant Vicky Stoughton, from the BCH Dog Unit, said: “I’m happy that the man was located safely and proud that t Police Dog Tai and his handler played such a vital role in finding him. This is an excellent example of our unit working with other policing teams effectively.”
