Investigators knew who to turn to when the 90-year-old went missing. Officer Saby, a four-legged miracle dog K9 with a sniffer who won’t give up, was called.
Loudell Hubbard, a 90-year-old woman from Birmingham, Alabama, has disappeared, reports ABC News. The older woman had been missing for more than twelve hours and had been out all night.
A search-and-rescue mission has been initiated. For more than twelve hours, a team searched for Hubbard. Officer Saby discovered her cold and damp in a creek bed, where she stayed the night with her pocketbook as a pillow.
Officer Saby led two officers from the Birmingham Police SRT K9 Unit, Richard Wright and Dustin Brock, straight to Hubbard. The K9 is credited by the officers for saving the woman’s life.
Officer Dustin Brock remarked, “It’s hard for us to emulate what he’s doing and get his job done as fast as he is.”
Hubbard, who suffers from dementia, wandered a mile and a half from her house and entered the woods. She couldn’t remember how she got there or how she got back. She is thought to have fallen into the creek and because of her weakness and confusion could not get out. She also forgot her cane at home.
Officer Brock explained how he found her:
Saby was pushing me toward the creek at the same time Richard came around the corner. She slept in the creek while I was coming. “
“I said, ‘Ma’am, can you hear me?’ “Wright said. We just went to see her after she raised her head.”
Frederick Jones, her neighbor from the neighborhood, was grateful she was found alive and says he never gave up hope of finding her. And she claims it was fantastic when she was rescued.
Officer Wright stated the following:
“When we got the call, I was hoping that if it was my grandmother, someone would go out of their way to find her.”
Jones cited the Bible to explain how and why it is necessary to look out for one another. “The Bible encourages us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. That’s where we’re at right now.”
Thanks to Officer Saby for being such a good dog, as well as to her search and rescue team. Hubbard is now in a local hospital and has no serious injuries.
