When the Greenwood Village Police Department got a call last week about a missing 85-year-old woman, two officers – one human and one canine – came to the rescue.

Officer Austin Speer and K9 Mercury were among those who responded to the call on Thursday, after the woman was reported missing for two hours. Mercury is trained in searching and tracking missing persons, Greenwood Village Police said on social media.

Body camera video shows Mercury led the way in the search across a grassy area, down a steep ravine. They find the woman moments later, clinging to a tree in the ravine. She couldn't be seen from the roadway or canal.

"Hi, ma'am," Speer says to the woman. "This is a friendly dog. He found you. Isn't that good? We're going to get you home, OK?"

The woman was returned safely to her family, police said.

Mercury joined Greenwood Village Police a year and a half ago and also has skills in narcotics detection, police said.
