Cushing — A Knox County deputy and his canine partner helped find an elderly couple who were lost in the woods Thursday night.

The Knox County Regional Communications Center received a report at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 3 of the couple being missing after going for a walk at the Cross Cushing Nature Preserve.

Inland Fisheries and Wildlife did not have a canine in the area, so Knox County Deputy Tim Davis and his canine Marek, a three-year-old German shepherd, responded to the scene. Marek was able to track the couple from their vehicle and located them in a thickly wooded area.

The two were uninjured and Deputy Davis and Marek walked the pair back to their vehicle.

Inland Fisheries and Wildlife was on its way to the scene when the couple was located. Cushing Fire and Rescue also responded.
