Friendship — The Knox County Sheriff's Office canine Marek came to the rescue again April 25.

At approximately 7:30 p.m. that evening, Knox County Regional Communications Center received a 911 call reporting an 87-year-old Friendship man went into the woods near Robert’s Lane about 30 mins earlier and did not return.

Members of the Friendship Fire Department, Waldoboro Emergency Medical Services and the Maine Wardens Service responded to assist. Knox County Sheriff's Office Deputy Tim Davis and his K9 Marek were also called in to help locate the man.

They were able to track the man and found him approximately 1,200 feet into the woods with his leg stuck. He was freed and checked by EMS and then able to return home.
