On November 14th 2018 we were asked by the Dutch Rescue Dogs (via OPCO police) to assist on November 15th in a search for a 77-year-old woman suffering from dementia who was last contacted by telephone on November 13th at 9:30.
Following the phone call she left by bike and just dropped off the grid.
Based on a very reliable sighting reported, a long stretch along a canal was searched as well as a woodland with a water feature.
The police’s assignment for the dog teams was to initally search along (bicycle) paths since there were no specific indications.
At 3.41 pm, news came in that the lady had been found. She turned out to be in hospital in Meppen, Germany after being found almost hypothermic in a forest in Germany. Fortunately, she is doing well again.
Oger SARdogs participated with 2 dogs and 2 team members in this search.
