A Shelby County Sheriff’s Office K-9 is being hailed as a hero for locating a missing 3-year-old child south of Sidney Tuesday.

Deputies were asked to help locate the missing child Tuesday afternoon at a house in the 15,000 block of Sidney Plattsville Road.

The K-9 Bandit and handler Deputy Frank Bleigh started a search at the front of the house and safely located the child within 10 minutes of responding, the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post.

“This is exactly why we have dog units, watching this track you could tell very well that Bandit had the scent of the child and was well on his way to finding him,” the sheriff’s office said in the post.
